A massive blaze has engulfed the ‘Marina Torch’ skyscraper in Dubai, forcing thousands of people to flee the 336-meter-high tower – one of the tallest residential buildings in the world.
The fire started in the middle of the tower, rapidly spreading across some 15 floors, according to photos and videos from the scene.
As the fire spread, chunks of the facade were seen falling down. Thousands of people were evacuated, gulfnews.com reported.

Doug Roberts: Yeah, it's all our fault.
Chief O'Hallorhan: Now, you know there's no sure way for us to fight a fire in anything over the seventh floor, but you guys just keep building 'em as high as you can.
Doug Roberts: Hey. Are you here to take me on, or the fire?
