Fire rips through Dubai Torch tower again

Dubai fire

A large fire swept through the residential Torch Tower in Dubai overnight, with firefighters working to save the 79-storey building.

A second fire broke out in the street, caused by burning debris, and photographs of damaged cars were posted to social media.

Dubai's Civil Defense announced at about 3:30 am local time that firefighters had brought the blaze under control. They also shared that the fire was bad and strong at about 1:00 A.M. but it started calming down after the next two hours.

But the incident may revive questions about the safety of materials used on the exteriors of tall buildings across the wealthy Gulf region and beyond. Also, fire ensures that flammability of the cladding is as close to zero as possible while constructing the building.
