Fire in Dubai – level 1

04-01-2016 07:00

A fire starts in Dubai. The fire is in a tall building. The building is close to the world’s tallest skyscraper. The building is 302 metres tall. The fire starts before New Year’s Eve.

People can see some things. The things fall from the building.

Fire fighters come. They have the situation under control.

It is not clear at the moment if everybody from the building is OK.

Difficult words: skyscraper (a very tall building), fire fighter (a person who stops fires).

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