Dubai skyscraper on fire - level 2
One of the tallest buildings in the world was on fire. It started on the 50th floor of the 330-metre-tall skyscraper in Dubai. Nobody is sure what caused the fire. Some say that a cigarette butt started it.
Nobody reported injuries, but hundreds of people had to evacuate the building.
Difficult words: cigarette butt (the end of a cigarette), injury (damage to somebody’s body), report (to say something officially such as to the media).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
