WATCH: Major fire erupts in Dubai residential tower

Published: Updated:

A fire has been reported in the Dubai Marina area on Sunday morning with videos on Twitter showing smoke and flames enveloping a tower described as a new residential building.

The flames appeared to be fanned by a major dust storm which has hit the country in recent days.

The fire began about 11am local time in the Zen Tower, close to Marina Mall, according to local news sites.

Emergency service sirens were heard across the area.
