The Disaster:

Early morning on the 20th of March, on our way to work, we noticed that the sky was black. A fire at a high-rise building which was still under construction led to hundreds of people being evacuated and it stopped the traffic into a complete halt. The debris were flying everywhere even across the highway. Michael and I actually live on the other side of the highway which is quite far but we can still hear the fire roaring and crackling.

You can see the massive flames from almost anywhere in Dubai. They said that there were a few explosions later on. They managed to control the fire after a few hours but the traffic...oh la la!

The good thing is that no one got hurt! Another exciting day in Dubai. Pictures are from the Gulf News.
