Large fire rips through Dubai's Torch Tower - VİDEO


A large fire has ripped through a residential skyscraper in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, APA reports quyoting BBC.

 

Footage posted on social media showed flames spreading up the Torch Tower, and burning debris falling down.

 

Civil defence officials have "successfully evacuated" the building and are now working to bring the fire under control, Dubai's authorities say.

 

It was not immediately clear what caused the blaze in one of the world's tallest buildings.

 

The Torch was damaged by an earlier fire in 2015.
