BREAKING: Fire Engulfs Dubai Skyscraper

As many were preparing to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Dubai, a massive fire erupted across the entire side of a five-star luxury hotel. Nobody was reportedly killed, though several were injured. The cause is undetermined as of yet. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A huge fire has engulfed a 63-storey hotel in central Dubai ahead of a New Year’s Eve firework display.

Despite the blaze at the Address hotel, the display at the nearby Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, started as planned at midnight.

Officials say the fire has been brought largely under control and 16 people suffered mostly minor injures.

It is unclear what caused the blaze, which broke out as large crowds had gathered to ring in the new year.

People were asked to leave the area around the Address Downtown Hotel, which was evacuated.”*
