A Dubai shopping mall was evacuated on Friday after a fire broke out.

According to a series of tweets by Dubai Media Office, no injuries have been reported.

Dubai Civil Defence said the fire was fully contained by 4pm local time after successful operations to put the flames out.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire which broke out at just after 11am but it is believed to have started in an air-conditioning unit on the rooftop.
