The blaze had reportedly broken out in a flat of the 14th floor of Falcon Tower in Rigga area in Deira.
Upon arriving on the scene, firefighters quickly evacuated the building.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this report identified the building as Deira tower. It was meant to suggest that the building was located in Deira and not name the building itself. The error is regretted.
