Fire strikes at another Dubai tower, but is quickly put out

AP  |  Dubai 

A fire has struck a high-rise in the Marina for the third time in four days, forcing the evacuation of a beachfront hotel.

The Movenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach said on Twitter that the fire this morning was "swiftly brought under control" and that all hotel guests were evacuated safely. They were later allowed back inside.

Video posted online showed black smoke wafting from the building as guests and hotel employees streamed out past a swimming pool.

An intense fire broke out in the more than 1,100-foot- tall Torch Tower early Friday, the second such blaze to hit what is one of the world's tallest residential skyscrapers.

Firefighters put out a small fire at the Tiger Tower across the street yesterday.
