DUBAI: A huge fire ripped through a plastics warehouse in the Jebel Ali industrial area of Dubai on Wednesday, sending thick plumes of smoke into the sky. 

Heavy smoke could be seen from miles away as firefighters successfully battled the blaze, Dubai’s Media Office said. The source of the fire was not given. 

“The Dubai Civil Defence team has successfully extinguished the fire at the plastic factory in Jebel Ali; the heavy smoke seen at the site is due to the nature of the plastic material,” the Dubai Media Office said in a tweet.
