Fire in Dubai - level 2
In Dubai, a fire broke out at a building close to the world's tallest skyscraper. The Address Downtown Dubai Hotel was in flames. The building that hosts the five-star hotel is 302 metres tall.
The fire started when Dubai prepared to hold a major New Year’s Eve fireworks display. It is still unclear if something connected the two events.
People could see some things falling from the building. Fire fighters arrived at the scene and said they had it under control.
It is not immediately clear whether there were any casualties or what caused the fire.
Difficult words: broke out (started), flames (a fire), casualties (injured or killed people).
