A fire broke out Thursday night at the high-end Address hotel in downtown Dubai, the government of the United Arab Emirates’ most populous city said. Video showed flames shooting out of many floors of the high-rise hotel’s midsection. Authorities were at the scene, working on the incident, the government said.

The blaze has run up at least 20 storeys of The Address Hotel near the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper.
