PM Directs Pakistan’s UAE Mission to Help Families of Dubai Fire Victims

The death of three Pakistanis in a residential building fire in Dubai has been lamented by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who has also asked Pakistan’s embassy in the UAE to offer assistance to the grieving families.

According to AFP, the fire started on the fourth floor of a building on Saturday at noon in the Al-Ras area in the ancient part of the city.

“I extend my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families over the tragedy. Have directed Pakistan’s Mission in the UAE to extend support to the affected families,” the PM said in a tweet today.

The civil defence force said preliminary investigations showed the fire was caused by a “lack of compliance with building security and safety requirements”, the UAE’s government’s media office said in a statement.

Although the nationalities of the fatalities have not been officially disclosed, local media reports claim that among the dead were four Indians, three Pakistanis, one Cameroonian, one Sudanese, and one West African.
