One of the biggest buildings in Dubai was caught up in an enormous fire on Thursday night.
More than 40 floors of the 86-storey Torch Tower were burning on one side of the building.
However, according to the latest reports, nobody was killed, or even badly injured.
Still, the footage taken by bystanders in the area of the Torch Tower fire is nothing short of terrifying:

The fire broke out around 1 a.m. and was under control by 3.30 a.m., according to Dubai’s emergency services.
The following morning a Dubai government account tweeted an image of the partially-burned tower. It said the tower had been put out in “record time.”
The tower also caught fire in February 2015. No injuries were reported then either.
New fire safety laws have been passed in the emirate after a spate of fires earlier this year. The new regulations focus on building cladding, which has also been a central issue in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire in London.
The British government is conducting several rounds of new fire safety tests, which hundreds of buildings have failed.
Business Insider UK is compiling a list of the buildings which failed the tests.
