A massive fire broke out in a Dubai skyscraper next to a fireworks display on Thursday.
It is not clear what sparked the blaze, which covered at least 20 stories of the 63-story Address hotel in downtown Dubai, Russia Today reported.
Burning debris rained down from the five-star hotel as firetrucks raced to the scene. So far no injuries have been reported.
The hotel and residential compound has nearly 200 rooms and 600 apartments.
It is near the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper.
