Dubai Marina's Zen Tower on Fire

A major fire in a Dubai Marina residential tower was extinguished on Sunday morning.

The fire broke out at the high-rise Zen Tower located in the south side of Dubai Marina around 11am, and The Dubai Civil Defence is working hard to put the fire out.

According to an update shared on Dubai Media Office's official Twitter account, Zen Tower was evacuated safely, with no injuries having been reported. The cause of the fire has yet to be released.

Huge plumes of smoke could be seen across Dubai Marina, as residents took to social media to share footage of the fire.

Due to the high winds and dry, dusty conditions, surrounding buildings have also reportedly been evacuated as a precaution.

As temperatures in Dubai and the UAE become higher and higher as we approach the summer months, it's important that residents take the necessary precautions to prevent fires in their residential buildings or villas.
