A fire has ripped through one of Dubai's tallest towers, the Dubai Marina Torch.
Burning debris can be seen falling from the Torch Tower in videos uploaded to social media by shocked onlookers.
A government media spokesperson said the building had been successfully evacuated, and no injuries had been reported so far.
The Torch Tower fire comes less than two months after the devastating fire - thought to be exacerbated by the type of cladding used to insulate the building - at Grenfell Tower in the United Kingdom in which more than 80 people lost their lives.
Following the Grenfell disaster, fire safety tests were ordered on aluminium composite cladding systems used on towers throughout the UK. The fire was very strong at that time, about 1am.
An Associated Press journalist near the scene said the fire was visible from outside on one side of the building. "It started on the 67th floor, that's what we were told". Hundreds of people were evacuated in 2015 from the same building when a massive fire swept through the tower.
"People still escaping torch tower Dubai. building is well ablaze. looks worse than 2015 fire", Rob Sheperd tweeted. Numerous tower's residents are European expats.
