Dubai's Torch Tower On Fire

A fire breaks out at the 1,105-foot Torch Tower skyscraper in Dubai on Friday. Panicked residents fled the glitzy tower after the fire ripped through it, the second blaze to hit the skyscraper in as many years. Authorities said no casualties were reported from the blaze which erupted in the middle to upper floors of The Torch, once the tallest residential development in the world.
