A huge fire ripped through Dubai’s iconic 84-storey Torch Tower near Dubai Marina in the United Arab Emirates, Friday early morning. There were no casualties or injuries.

The fire broke out at around 3:30 a.m. Dubai Civil Defence said the fire was put out in about two hours and the building was being cooled.

This is the second time that the tower is catching fire. The first was in February 2015.

Video posted on social media showed a line of fire up one side of the building. Debris was seen falling.

Eyewitnesses said the fire had engulfed 30 to 40 residences. Several floors on at least three sides of the building were affected by the fire. Two cars in the parking deck caught fire due to the falling debris.

Local firefighters fought the fire from inside the tower.

When the fire broke out, many of the residents were out and enjoying the nightlife.

The Torch was the world’s tallest residential tower when it was completed in 2011. It has since been surpassed by six others and is today thought to be the 32nd tallest building in the world.

The Torch was constructed by Select Group and comprises 682 residential units with 24-hour security and concierge, and six retail spaces. It has 84 floors, the developer’s website says.
