There has been a second skyscraper fire in
in as many years. Following the New Year conflagration of the Address Downtown
another of the city's iconic high-rises has gone up in flames, this time it is
the now facetiously named .
The type of fire is very similar in nature to the tragedy at Torch Tower , see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/grenfell-tower-fire.html.
However because this is a luxury block of flats and not a council human rubbish
stack for people the authorities consider worthless, it has alarms, detectors,
sprinklers and all the other necessary emergency appliances needed that
Grenfell lacked; therefore all the residents were successfully evacuated to
safety. Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4759064/High-rise-residential-block-Dubai-bursts-flames.html.
