Fire breaks out in downtown Dubai
A construction site near Dubai Mall caught fire early Sunday morning.
Dubai Media Office identified the building as the Address Residence Fountain Views – a three 60-storey tower complex expected to be completed by next year.
According to eye-witnesses, the fire broke out at around 5.30am. However, Dubai Media Office confirmed that the fire was brought under control within three hours.
Billows of black smoke could be seen coming out of the building, before the fire was put out by fire extinguishing squad and a cooling operation was initiated to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby areas.
