A car was reportedly on fire in Sharjah’s Al Nahda area at about 8,20am this morning and firefighters brought it under control in less than hour.

However, traffic remains slow-moving as of 9.20am.

The incident was reported at 8.30am UAE time as commuters complained of traffic snarls while on their morning journey from Sharjah to Dubai.

“Firefighters still trying to control the fire – burning petrol is not helping – A car burst into flames in #sharjah” tweeted user SMoizS.

The user tweeted he could see the burning from his apartment window. “FIRE! another fire in #sharjah .. and again it’s next door to me. All I see outside my window is smoke,” he said. More info
