Residents of Dubai's Duja Tower have thanked a nearby luxury hotel for hosting them after a fire broke out in their building on Thursday night.
Taking to Twitter, a UAE-based culture blogger @wanderwithnada thanked Sheraton Grand Hotel in Dubai for setting up a room full of beds for those affected by the fire in Duja Tower.
She posted a picture of the makeshift room lined with their hotel beds.

Other residents replied on the post acknowledging the hotel's humble gesture and hospitality.
