A massive fire broke out at a skyscraper near Burj Khalifa

A fire broke out early Monday morning at a 35-story high-rise building in Dubai near the world’s tallest structure, the Burj Khalifa.

It was unclear whether anybody was hurt in the fire at the apartment complex, which had been doused by the time an Associated Press reporter arrived.

The blaze’s black char marks could be seen stretching up the skyscraper, which is part of a series of buildings named 8 Boulevard Walk by Emaar, the emirate’s state-backed developer.

The fire was not immediately recognised by Dubai police or civil defence.

Emaar did not reply quickly to a request for comment.

In recent years, a spate of incidents in skyscraper-studded Dubai have raised concerns about the safety of cladding and other materials used in the country.
