The Ras Al Khaimah civil defence brought a fire under control that broke out at an oil factory in the Al Halila area, just north of the emirate on Saturday.

The firefighting team continued their efforts from the moment they reached the place of the incident despite the heavy smoke.

They posted on their official social media channel that they had successfully extinguished the blaze, and the cooling process is currently underway.
