A fire broke out in an oil warehouse in Laamu atoll Maabaidhoo island around noon on Sunday.

Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) successfully put out the fire by around 12:40 p.m. using foam.

While several residents of Maabaidhoo had aided the firefighters, a source from Maibaadhoo told Mihaaru that the fire was so strong that it had also spread to an adjoining store.

The oil warehouse has been damaged beyond use.
