Fire strikes another tower in the Dubai Marina


Second blaze in two days

Fire damage to the exterior of the Torch Tower in the Marina district of Dubai.
A fire has struck another high-rise tower in the Dubai Marina, just days after a blaze struck one of the world’s tallest residential towers in the same neighbourhood.
Witnesses said firefighters had already begun spraying water inside of the tower on Sunday.
Emergency officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
Early on Friday, a blaze hit the 86-story Torch Tower nearby. It was the second time in two and a half years that the more than 1 100-foot-tall tower has been ravaged by fire. The Torch, located in Dubai’s popular waterfront Marina district, also caught fire in February 2015. There were no major casualties reported in either blaze.
