DUBAI, UAE — A fire engulfed The Address Hotel in downtown Dubai in the United Arab Emirates hours before New Year celebration.
A large fireworks display was set to start nearby from the Burj Khalifa tower, the world’s largest building according to the bystanders.
The government fears that many people inside the hotel need immediate attention. The civil defense teams are working to evacuate the hotel and tackle the fire.
