Another minor fire broke out in the new construction area of the Abu Dhabi International Airport, resulting in a short disruption for a small number of flights. Preliminary investigations suggest that drones may have caused the two fires. The flying objects fell in the two areas just before the fires started, the Abu Dhabi Police said.

“Teams from the competent authorities have been dispatched and the fire is currently being put out,” Emirates news agency WAM reported. No significant damages have been reported. The police have launched an investigation to ascertain the cause of the fires and the circumstances that led to it.
