Stunning Time Lapse Shows the Skyscraper in Dubai Engulfed in Fire

On New Year’s Eve, the 63-story Address hotel in Dubai caught on fire. It was a scary sight made worse as the back drop to the fire was the Burj Khalifa (and Dubai’s New Year celebration). The entire skyscraper seemed to be burning! But thankfully only 14 people suffered injuries. This time lapse by Kirill Neiezhmakov shows the skyscraper on fire in incredible detail. It’s such a jarring visual, the recognizable Dubai skyline engulfed in fire and dark smoke.

Does this building have fire sprinklers? Doesn’t seem like it did if the fire went all the way up to the top floor like that. I thought the fire was just in the lower floor area from the pics I’ve seen up until now.
