Pics: Fire rips through one of the world's tallest residential buildings in Dubai

The Dubai Marina Torch, an 86-storey building which stands (1,105 ft), was engulfed by fire in the early hours of today forcing a mass evacuation. The fire reportedly started around the 52nd floor then moved to the lower parts of the building. Thousands of residents were evacuated from the highrise and it took more than a dozen fire trucks to extinguish the flames.

Authorities say there were no reports of deaths or injuries from the Marina Torch fire and the cause of the fire is not immediately clear. See photos from the incident after the cut...

Unlike Nigeria that's why there is a functional insurance system

Seeing that no one was injured, I now pity the insurance company. Crazy claims, Lesser profits. #Wise1

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit. See the link below for more info.
