    A fire broke out in a skyscraper in Dubai. It's a very tall structure and it's residential. The fire started and because of high winds the fire spread. Some reports say that fire is between the 50th and 70th floors. Molten glass is falling.

    These high rise apartment buildings are always vulnerable to someone's carelessness in any of the occupied apartments. Since the elevators are shutdown in fires like this, it's a long way down through the stairwells probably filled with smoke. I'll stick to lower floors.

    As a very wise person once said in Ferguson Missouri.........."BURN THIS BITCH"
    That was a sign from Allah.....apparently he only wanted buildings 75 floors tall. .......79 floors obstructed his view of his children, also causing "flying carpets" to alter flight plans

    What about the "twin" towers; same problem, as well shoddy construction and design; I wonder if they built the floors in the new building the same way; may be they cut corners again; who knows.
