Firefighting brigades from four stations have been sent to battle the flames at the Torch Tower, the fifth tallest residential building in the world. Videos posted online show the flames spreading upwards while pieces of burning debris are falling onto the streets of Dubai’s marina.
There is no word on casualties, but Dubai’s government media office announced that residents have been successfully evacuated from the building. “No injuries have been reported so far in the Torch Tower fire incident,” Dubai’s media office said in a tweet.

 

The fire is believed to have started on the ninth floor before ascending towards the top stories. It’s the second time in two years the Torch Tower has been engulfed in flames. In a February 2015 incident, seven people suffered smoke inhalation but the fire was quickly brought under control.
