A small fire which started in an apartment on the 26th floor of the Address Hotel Dubai Mall was “brought under control in record time” by the Civil Defence teams, according to the state news agency Wam.
The Government of Dubai Media Office confirmed through its Twitter account that the “small fire reported at The Address Hotel Dubai Mall was extinguished immediately. Situation is back to normal”.
An electrical short circuit was also to blame for the New Year’s Eve fire at another Address Hotel, which is also near Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa. The Address Downtown Hotel, which was engulfed by flames is still to reopen following the blaze.
