A massive fire broke out at a 63-storey hotel in Dubai at about 9:30 PM. Revelers were left running for their lives to escape the Address Downtown, which is across a lake from the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, where the city’s spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks display is scheduled to take place.
According to a local medic, 60 people were hurt in the fire, with one suffering a heart attack. Those gathered below were still in danger, from falling debris that may have been on fire. Officials have said the firework display will still take place as scheduled.
