Residential tower block in Dubai evacuated after fire breaks out
Sunday 18 November 2012
Rescue crews in Dubai have evacuated a 34-story residential tower after a fire gutted portions of the building.
There was no immediate word on casualties.
The blaze charred the outside of the structure and sent grey smoke drifting over a major development known as Jumeirah Lakes Towers, a cluster of high-rise apartment buildings and shops on the southern edge of Dubai.
Civil defence officials did not give immediate details on the cause of the pre-dawn fire.
