Dubai skyscraper on fire – level 1

26-02-2015 07:00

There are skyscrapers in Dubai. One skyscraper is on fire. A cigarette butt starts the fire. The fire starts on the 50th floor.

Hundreds of people must leave the building. Luckily, nobody dies, and nobody is injured.

The building is 330 metres tall.

Difficult words: skyscraper (a very tall building), cigarette butt (the end of a cigarette), to be injured (to have problems with your body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
