Video: DCD continues to battle Downtown Dubai fire

Dubai Civil Defence firefighters are still battling to keep a blaze at an under-construction building in Downtown Dubai under control

Dubai Civil Defence (DCD) firefighters are still battling a blaze at an under-construction building near to Dubai Mall.

Three construction workers have been rescued from the structure, and no injuries have been reported so far.

Dubai Police tweeted that the fire had been brought under control shortly before 8.00am this morning.

However, levels of smoke rising from the building appeared to intensify during the hours that followed, and DCD firefighters are still working at the scene to keep the blaze under control.

The following video shows plumes of grey smoke rising from the structure, and obscuring the view of surrounding buildings in Downtown Dubai.

The video was captured at 10.00am on Sunday, 2 April, 2017.
