Dubai's famous 'Torch Tower', the largest residential building in the world is on fire - again. This is the second time that the building has caught fire. The first time was back in 2015, which the building was still under repair to fix when it went up again today. Residents could be seen sitting out front on the curb, many of them in their pajamas as they were evacuated in the middle of the night.
The cause of the fire is still unclear and rescuers said that they evacuated everyone from the building before anyone was hurt. This is still an ongoing story so the details are still coming in and information may change. But it's safe to assume that Torch Tower is living up to its name.
