The fire started on the balcony of an apartment on the 26th floor of the 32 floor tower on Wednesday morning and spread upwards to the 28th floor, the Dubai Civil Defence said.

Dubai Civil Defence said the fire only burned the façade of the building and that the interior was not affected.

Portions of external claddings of the tower on at least three floors above the 26th floor have been burnt, but the fire was extinguished at 10.25am.

According to people working in the office tower, the fire alarm went off at 9:45am, but people initially took it for a mock drill. More info
