Authorities in Dubai say a massive fire at the Torch Tower, an 86-storey residential building, has been brought under control.
No casualties or injuries have been reported.
Officials say they successfully evacuated the building, which has more than 670 apartments.
An investigation is underway to find out what caused the fire.
The police say they believe the fire had started on the 9th floor of the building before spreading to other floors.
The Torch Tower is one of the tallest residential buildings in the world. It was damaged by a previous fire in 2015.
