Massive Fire Erupts at Torch Tower in Dubai Marina

Kind of an unfortunate name:

Dubai: A massive fire has broken out in the Torch tower at Dubai marina. The blaze started on the 50th floor, a resident said. The Marina Torch is a residential skyscraper at the Dubai Marina. The tower is one of the tallest residential building in the world. The tower reaches 336.1 m (1105 ft) in height with 79 floors above ground.

Fire coming under control, but flares whenever the wind blows.

“This building has been plagued since opening with false fire alarms on an almost daily basis. I personally had threaten to call the civil defense on many occasions but was constantly fobbed off by the building management,” says Digby Taylor, head of operations at GN Broadcasting.
