A huge fire has engulfed two high rise buildings in the United Arab Emirates city of Ajman, causing panic among residents.
Ambulances and firefighters arrived immediately and took control of the situation, however the fire is massive and might take a while for them to completely put it off.
The police gave no details on casualties in tweets confirming the blaze late on Monday, but said efforts were ongoing to put out the fire.
Social media users shared images of the fire showing bright yellow flames spreading up the side of the buildings.
Officials told Gulf News that the tenants were being evacuated to safety.
Traffic on roads leading to the area had come to a virtual halt, according to local media.
