Over this weekend, a fire broke out in Marina's Torch Tower. It was the second fire at Torch Tower in just as many years, and residents in the 87-story building were evacuated in the early hours of Friday morning. On Saturday, they were let back in to retrieve their belongings, though as of Sunday morning people have still not been allowed to move back in.
On Sunday morning, another fire broke out just feet from Torch Tower at Tiger Tower, and people on the ground spotted smoke coming from top floors around 11am this morning.
Dubai's Civil Defense responded immediately, and the tower was evacuated. As in the Torch Tower incident, no one was injured, and the fire is under control. The fire began on a resident's balcony.
