Witnesses say a high-rise tower in Dubai’s Marina district has caught fire, but there are no immediate details on casualties.

The fire broke out early today in the Torch tower on the north-eastern end of the densely populated district, which is packed with multi-storey skyscrapers.

Debris from the fire cluttered nearby streets after the blaze appeared to be extinguished. High winds whipped through the area.

Police on the scene had no immediate reports of casualties.
