This Time-Lapse Captured the Huge Skyscraper Fire in Dubai on New Year’s Eve


When the 63-story Address Downtown Dubai hotel went up in flames on New Year’s Eve, photojournalist Dennis Mallari dangled from a cable on the 48th floor and kept shooting.

Photographer Kirill Neiezhmakov was also photographing the blaze at the same time, except he was on the other side of town. From a safe distance, Neiezhmakov captured the hauntingly beautiful time-lapse video above that shows the fire spewing smoke and embers onto the Dubai skyline.
