Firefighters battle massive blaze at Dubai tower, residents evacuated (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

Dubai Civil Defence said they were working to put out the blaze at Zen Tower in the Marina area on Sunday morning, and confirmed that all residents had been evacuated safely, with no reports of injuries.

The fire broke out at around 11am local time and appears to have stripped the building’s cladding. The blaze coincides with a huge dust storm in the region, causing poor visibility.

Dubai Civil Defence said it brought the blaze under control within an hour of reaching the site.

Properties for sale in the Zen Tower currently range from US$242,295 (890,000 AED) for a 1,025 square foot one bed apartment, up to $1.14 million (4,200,000 AED) for a penthouse.
