Fire Breaks Out in Dubai's Tallest Building

Disaster: The fire broke out early Saturday in the Torch tower on the northeastern end of the Marina district
There was a strange fire in the tallest residential building in Dubai at about 2am. The building which is located in a densely populated area is an 86 storey building standing at 1,105ft height. Cause of the fire is still unknown but no casualty was recorded. The fire which started when many were asleep got some residents running down about 72 flight of stairs as the lifts weren't functional. Firefighters are said to have had it under control in a short while. See more photos of the building after the cut:
