Too Close for Comfort

The latest fire to make the news was in my building! This time in Abu Dhabi.

I arrived after the scene and describe what I witnessed, but full coverage is provided both in Gulf News and The National. The National's coverage, including video footage is quite amazing.

What is also amazing is how the emergency crews went into action--as the picture shows.

This probably would have been another tragedy with a body count had the emergency crews not been so well prepared.

Kudos to Abu Dhabi's emergency services.

I saw the trucks, but couldn't see a tremendous amount of smoke.

Great story and pictures! You seem to be pretty calm about the whole affair. Well done, and Kudos to the folks who handled this potentially horrific fire.

The firemen were the heroes during both the fires in Abu Dhabi. I think more than anyone else, they deserve the "Abu Dhabi Awards".
