DUBAI – Dec. 31-  A massive fire erupted at a five-star hotel in Dubai’s crowded downtown area, ahead of New Year celebrations.

Huge flames engulfed parts of The Address Hotel, which stands at a short distance from the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building – causing a stampede.

Dubai Police Chief General Khamis AlMuzainah told Newsweek Middle East over the phone that there have been “14 light injuries resulting mainly from stampede, and one heart attack case.”

AlMuzainah expected the fire to be completely under control before midnight, adding that the “New Year’s celebrations will carry on according to schedule.”

By 11:30pm (GMT +4),  police and civil defense personnel were inside the hotel carrying a wide inspection and search mission to make sure that no one was trapped inside the hotel’s rooms.

The area, which has tens of thousands of people gathering to celebrate the New Year, was quickly secured by the police.

 

According to the son of Dubai's ruler, the cause of the fire was electrical malfunction.
