Abu Dhabi industrial area fire claims lives of 10 laborers

Police in the Emirati capital of Abu Dhabi have launched an investigation into a deadly fire that tore through a building in an industrial area where laborers were sleeping and killed 10 people. Abu Dhabi police said the fire broke out early Friday morning in the al-Mussafah industrial area, a district filled with warehouses, factories and workshops on the outskirts of the capital. The blaze started in car repair shops located at the base of a commercial building before spreading to a second-story warehouse that had been illegally rented out as accommodation to the workers. Firefighters managed to put out the fire only after it had gutted the entire building.
