So sad to hear that fire broke out Thursday at the popular Address hotel near Dubai's massive New Year's Eve fireworks display.
It was not immediately clear what caused the fire, which ran up at least 20 stories of the building. The building is near the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper at 828 meters (905 yards).
The good news is, no injuries have been reported following the outbreak according to the general director of the city's Civil Defence department.
Major General Rashed al-Matrushi told pan-Arab television channel Al Arabiya: "There are no injuries, thank God ... of course, it will not affect the celebration".
