A fire ripped through one of the world's tallest residential towers in Dubai on Friday, forcing hundreds of occupants to leave the tower. The building was evacuated, no injuries were reported, and there was no immediate word on the cause of the incident. The government said it was working on providing shelter for those affected. It’s the second fire to sweep through the Torch tower in just two years.
