Abu Dhabi firefighters probe cause of Masdar City blaze

Masdar, the company behind the green-energy technology community in Abu Dhabi, said on Sunday that a fire broke out at Masdar City for the second time in a week.

Government-backed Masdar said that the fire started at about 1.30am and damaged parts of the company's temporary offices on the outskirts of the site, Associated Press reported on Sunday, citing a company statement.

Abu Dhabi firefighters put out the blaze and are investigating the cause, it said, adding that no injuries were reported.

Masdar said the fire did not affect the permanent buildings that form the core of the project.

AP said another fire started in a heat exchanger linked to a solar energy pilot project at the site on the morning of May 11.
