A fire has engulfed a Dubai hotel close to where the city is about to hold its New Year celebrations.

The Address Downtown is on fire, with the flames appearing to reach from the ground floor up another 40-or-so storeys of the 63 floor building.

It was not immediately clear what caused the blaze at the five star hotel, which is minutes from the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper, where the New Year's display is due to begin at 8pm UK time.

Authorities have said the display is still going ahead, despite the burning debris falling from the building.

In before "That won't buff out."

Geez, anyone know what their procedures are like? Any chance that anyone was saved?

It's a weird fire, it looks like something on the exterior of the building is on fire or they just store gasoline in hotels in Dubai.
