Update: Fires breakout in Dubai, Abu Dhabi restaurants; claim four lives

Gas leakages are believed to be the cause of both blazes

Two separate fires were reported in restaurants in the neighbouring emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

In Dubai, a man of Asian origin died, after a fire blazed through a restaurant on early Monday morning.ย A gas leak is believed to be the cause of the fire, local media have reported.

The fire that razed the eatery was reported at 4.31am, according to the Dubai Civil Defence.

The dining outlet in question is located in Dubai International City 2. The deceased was at the restaurant at the time of the incident.

Meanwhile, three individuals died when an explosion caused by a gas connection ripped through a restaurant on Sheik Rashid bin Saeed road, in the capital emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The Sri Lankan embassy confirmed on Thursday that one expat had lost his life, while the Philippines Embassy had reportedly stated earlier that two Filipinos were killed in the explosion.

On-site investigations suggest a misalignment in the gas container fittings to be the cause of the explosion.

People inflicted with minor and major injuries are being treated.
