Just an hour or so ago, one of the tallest residential towers in the world, the 79-story Marina Torch Tower in Dubai, made good on its namesake and burst into flames. At least six floors seem to be affected at this point.

It’s unclear how the fire started.

Funny, I would have thought the rich would have demanded highest building code standards.
whatever started that fire – and it is most likely an occupant …..   or faulty wiring.. which is where the spread most likely is the source…..
it has certainly spread a lot quicker than one would expect.
there must not even be a sprinkler system in there to contain it
will THIS be the end of the tall building syndrome?
the higher the tower, the longer the evacuation
I hope the view was worth one’s life……

fracking causing quakes as lubrication essentially, allowing movement where there was none before…

    Judy Hiscock is that what it is? … is that the conscious energy of the human mind that helps to create disasters? … disaster porn for people who love this kind of stuff? Sure it is. God help us have thoughts of peace and harmony and cooperation and compassion.

    Nina K Tryggvason I was comparing a fire on a reservation that kills toddlers vs that response to the toddler in toronto who died and a lot of mony was raised. the language used is intentiionally inflamatory. like regular media

    Judy Hiscock In the US and on Fox News yes, but that terminology immediately turns me away. I did not read the article because of it.

    Nina K Tryggvason okay. thank you for the feedback. and it’s nice to know someone is turned off by sensationalism
