Watch: Massive Fire Engulfs Sprawling UAE Market In Flames

As GCC member states pledge to send aid to embattled Lebanon following yesterday's shocking and historic blast, allegedly caused by government negligence in the borderline failed state, a massive explosion just rocked a busy market near Dubai, in the UAE.

The fire has spread rapidly through a market in the emirate of Ajman.

Social media users are speculating without any evidence about a possible connection between this fire and the explosion yesterday in Beirut - though "bad things come in twos and threes" isn't much of a theory to go on.

The fire is apparently ongoing, according to several regional media orgs.

Any cause or causes are still unknown.

This angle helps capture the size of the fire.

Some unconfirmed reports online have claimed fatalities have been reported, though nothing has been confirmed.

And finally...

Of course, UAE is no stranger to sweeping structure fires. In one recent example, Abbco Tower in the city of Sharjah near Dubai caught fire back in May.
