A HUGE fire broke out at an Emaar building in Dubai near Burj Khalifa in the early hours of Monday, November 7.

Videos circulating online show the Emaar skyscraper, which is located near Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, on fire.

According to local reports, the 35-storey building caught fire just after midnight at the 8 Boulevard Walk Tower in Downtown Dubai.

Multiple angles show the full extent of the blaze.

arabianbusiness.com reported that the fire was eventually extinguished around 4 am. However, no information about the cause of the blaze or if anyone has been injured has yet to be released.

“A massive fire broke out early Monday morning at a 35-story high-rise building of the #Emaar company in the centre of #Dubai in the Downtown area near the #BurjKhalifa, the world’s tallest building.”

The fire is scarily similar to the one that broke out in China in September.

On Friday, September 16, a huge fire ripped through a high-rise Telecom building in Changsha, China.
