A fire has broken out at Torch Tower in Dubai, one of the tallest residential buildings in the world.

Al Arabiya reported that firefighters were dispatched to the 79-storey tower late on Thursday, August 3.

No one has been reported injured and the fire department said everyone was evacuated from the building.

The skyscraper, which measures more than 330 meters (1,082 feet), caught fire once before in February 2015.
