Jebel Ali Fire
So you may have heard this yesterday, apparently there was a fire in the port of Jebel Ali here in Dubai.

I guess at 4 am some chemical depot exploded or something. It took three hours to contain the fire.

I only heard about it on the news myself, by the time I was awake the billowing black plumes of smoke were gone.

But we are actually pretty close to Jebel Ali here, a couple of miles I'd guess. Some older maps even call the area we live in (Al Sufouh) as part of Jebel Ali.

Anyway, needless to say, we're safe from the chemical fire.
