Fire breaks out in 35-storey Downtown Dubai building 

A fire broke out in a high-rise building in Downtown Dubai in the early hours of Monday. All residents were safely evacuated, with no injuries or casualties reported, the Dubai Civil Defence confirmed.

A photo shared by the DCD showed black charred marks from the blaze on the 35-storey building.

Upon being alerted about the fire at 3.11am on Monday, firefighters reached the site in under five minutes. After evacuating the building, the civil defence worked towards putting out the “medium-intensity blaze” that broke out on the tower’s façade.

“The field commander confirmed at 4.52am that the fire had been brought under control. At 6.08am, the field commander’s signal declared that the operations were completely over and that the site would be handed over to the authorities concerned to take the necessary action,” the civil defence said.
