Ring the alarms: there was a fire at the Al-Marzouk Pearl residential complex earlier today.
The fire happened around 3:45-4:00 PM. Apparently the elevators in Block 2 of the building caught fire, destroying the elevator shafts and cabins, as well as causing considerable smoke damage on the fourth floor. Thankfully, no casualties have been reported. Exact details on the fire's cause should be available soon.
The fire was fully extinguished in under an hour, but a lot of renovation work needs to be in line for the complex's owners/managers.
The following photographs were taken on my iPhone when I checked the damage out with my friend and fellow blogger K5.
