Dubai High Rise on fire -LIVE
Multiple outlets are reporting the Torch Tower in the Marina district is ablaze AGAIN!
The Dubai Media Office says there have been no injuries reported so far. More as the story develops.

The Torch Tower is one of the world's tallest residential towers reaching more than 80 storeys high.





Hundreds of people were evacuated in 2015 from the same building when a massive fire swept through the tower.
"Dubai Civil Defence has successfully evacuated the Torch Tower and is working to bring the fire under control," the Dubai government said on its twitter account.

If I lived or worked in a skyscraper, I keep a quick-deploy parachute within easy reach.

And across town in the Dubai High Rise Insurance Corp. Tower, executives seen throwing themselves from the rooftop over the insurance payout they now face.

The way the fire is spread across the building, it looks like that terrible fire in Grandfell Tower in London.

Were similar components used in building this tower?

Missed the part where Jumbo jets filled with gasoline slammed into the building at hundreds of miles per hour.

Did I miss the part where it says the building is empty or are, at this second, people burning and suffocating to death while there are jokes made here?

There is a time for everything but I think this is the wrong moment to make jokes about how it compares to 9/11.

missed that, MY fault. Regardless...going to bed now...no sleep...

A little report on who made the repairs after the last fire and who became responsible for fire extinguishment.
www.constructionweekonline.com...

This link has the past and present weather in Dubai.
www.timeanddate.com...

It seems to me that the fire safety procedures worked pretty well once put into motion, the building was evacuated and the fire was brought under control.

It's been 44°C or around that for the last few days, wind was low too. The last fire was difficult to control due to winds, the cause is too early to call.

Terrorism?
Human error?
Poor funding?

I'll say human error. Fires are like car crashes, the cause is usually down to human error rather than mechanical failure.
