Over 300 tenants of Dubai's Duja Towers return to apartments after fire

Dubai Municipality has confirmed that the fire did not cause any structural damage to the building

Over 300 tenants of Dubai's Duja Towers return to apartments after fire

Nasser Lootah Real Estate, which manages the tower, confirmed in a statement that fire and maintenance contractors assessed every apartment before tenants were allowed to access their properties.

Over 300 tenants have moved back into Duja Towers on Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road, just days after fire ripped through the building.

Nasser Lootah Real Estate, which manages the tower, confirmed in a statement that fire and maintenance contractors assessed every apartment before tenants were allowed to access their properties.

Riyadh Davids, general manager of the real estate, said: "On behalf of the owners and management of Duja Towers, we thank our residents for their patience as we faced the crisis together. Their support enabled us to facilitate their moving into the apartments within 36 hours of the incident. We will continue to stand by our tenants and offer support.

"We are extremely thankful to the Dubai Civil Defence for their promptness and professionalism, whereby the fire was contained to just one area of the building."

The statement added that fire sprinklers and alarm systems have also been inspected and, where necessary, fixed. “Six of the 12 elevators have been restored and work is ongoing at an accelerated pace to restore the remaining elevators on a priority basis,” I said.

Residents affected by the incident have been provided week-long accommodation in nearby hotels.

Dubai Municipality confirmed that the fire did not cause any structural damage to the building, while investigations into the cause of the blaze are ongoing.
