Fires On Sheikh Zayed Have Been Put Out After A Dangerous Car Pile-Up

Warning drivers, there’s a dangerous accident occurred on Sheikh Zayed Road that has set multiple cars on fire followed by traffic across the lanes.

Accident occurred after Danube Metro Station

Drivers heading Abu Dhabi bound will have to take alternate routes because the accident has taken place right after Danube Metro Station near Jebel Ali on Sheikh Zayed Road. All the lanes are jammed and there’s no sign of vehicles moving.

E611 and E311 are the alternative routes available

Going towards Abu Dhabi will be relatively more convenient by using the Emirates Road(E611) or the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road(E311). The E611 route ends at the Al Fayah Truck Road while the E311 route ends at Al Falah area in Abu Dhabi.

Dubai Civil Defense has cleared the fire

Soon after the fire erupted, the Dubai Civil Defense team instantly arrived at the location. Three ambulances, two fire trucks and one helicopter arrived to attend the victims and put out the fires. The reason for the fire breaking out hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s safe to use the alternative routes to Abu Dhabi for now.

Recently fires were put out at Global Village

Last week, fires broke out at the Chinese Pavilion at Dubai’s popular tourist spot, Global Village. However, there were no casualties caused since it’s the off-season and it was on until April 7th. It was the second time the tourist spot caught fire after the Yemen Pavilion incident last November, which was put out within an hour by the Dubai Civil Defense team.
