A huge fire has broken out in a high-rise hotel in central Dubai close to the world's tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. Burning debris fell from the 300m-tall (1,000-feet) building as firefighters arrived at the scene. The cause of the blaze is unclea

Just saw this breaking on BBC news a huge fire has erupted in a skyscraper in downtown Dubai. Currently no reports on casualties or the cause of the fire. Lots of speculation this could have been caused by fireworks

Man that looks nasty. Seems to be on a lot of floors as well which is odd.

Yeah the reports I am watching where saying 20 floors could be on fire with fires possibly spreading to other buildings.

They have also said no casualties so far which is good news so far

If struck by a large passenger airliner, tanks filled with fuel and traveling at it's peak speed....yes, it will, eventually.

It's funny how 9/11 agenda people always make comments or comparisons that make no sense logically.

Oh look a tall building on fire, it's exactly the same as the Towers..

Just have to wait for it to collapse neatly into it's own footprint. Hope they pull out the firemen in time.

Not even a page in and this thread goes from a fire in Dubai to another 9/11 debate. Seriously guys can we try to stay on topic for a few pages.

That is what gravity does. It makes things drop straight down. Like your IQ.

Only if Aviation fuel has caused the building to catch fire.

On topic- That's sad for those people affected by the fire, let's hope there are not too many casualties.

Looks like the fire is burning on the outside of the building.

Is that an elevator shaft or fire escape on fire in that picture? It looks like a vertical line of fire up through all those floors. If that is the case, it doesn't seem like an accident to me.

Yeah I was thinking it looked like that.

TO me, I see the windows of each of those floors illuminated like the fire was inside and not outside.

Wasn't there a high rise fire a while back that the deck furniture all burned up the side of the building but the damage inside was limited??

Could be deliberate, no reports of any explosions or anything else that would suggest a deliberate act so far
