UAE: 3 fuel tankers explode, minor airport fire announced in Abu Dhabi

Two separate fire incidents were reported in Abu Dhabi on Monday morning, possibly caused by drones.

The Abu Dhabi Police said a fire caused an explosion in three fuel tankers in Musaffah.

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.
