An surge inside a container on a ship docked at Dubai’s Jebel Ali port late Wednesday triggered a big fire and was felt throughout the city, authorities stated.

There were no reported deaths or injuries and the fire is under control, authorities stated. “A fire has been reported to have broken out in a container within a ship anchored in Jebel Ali Port.

A Dubai Civil Defense team is working to put out the blaze,” Dubai Media Office stated in a tweet on their main account.

The Dubai Media Office published a video of firemens putting out the blaze at the port.

Several CNN workers in Dubai stated they heard and felt the surge, which triggered structures to shake, as far as 15 kilometers far from the port.

Social media video revealed a big ball of fire burst from the port location illuminating the night sky.

Jebel Ali is the ninth biggest port worldwide and the most significant in the area.
