Two separate fire incidents were reported in the wee hours of Monday in Abu Dhabi. The reason behind the explosion was possibly carried by drones. According to the police statement a fire caused an explosion in three fuel tankers in Musaffah. The tankers were in ICAD 3, near ADNOC’s storage area. Another minor fire broke out in the new construction area of the Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Preliminary investigations suggest that drones may have caused the two fires. The flying objects fell in the two areas just before the fires started, the Abu Dhabi Police said. No “significant” damages have been reported. The police have launched an investigation to ascertain the cause of the fires and the circumstances that led to it.
