Fire damages huge skyscraper

One of the tallest skyscrapers in the world has been badly damaged by fire.

The 86 storey building is nicknamed the Torch and can be found in the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, in the Middle East.

The blaze began at 2am on Saturday night and it took 12 fire engines to put out the flames.

The building was evacuated and 2,000 people were led to safety. Luckily no one was badly injured.

The outside of the building from roughly the 50th floor to the top was mangled and charred black.

Cleanup crews dressed in orange uniforms swept up pieces of shattered GLASSand other debris covering the street outside the building.

The people who live in the tower have been told it could be days before they can go home.
