Fire broke out at a 14 -story apartment building in the UAE city of Dubai late Monday, the local Gulf News reported.

The fire hit the building in the upscale Palm Jumeirah area.

There were no reported causalities following the incident.


In late August, fire swept through a 28-storey skyscraper under construction in central Abu Dhabi, the latest in a series of at least five blazes to hit tall buildings in the United Arab Emirates over the last 18 months.
