This Time-Lapse Video Shows How Fire Engulfed a Dubai Hotel on New Years Eve

Fire engulfed a 63-story Dubai hotel on New Years Eve, the third fire in a high-rise building in the city in as many years.

Photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov captured this haunting video as the blaze took hold at The Address Hotel in Dubai. In the wake of the blaze a leading fire expert has warned of inevitable fatalities because of widespread use of flammable cladding during the emirate’s construction boom.
