There was no immediate word on casualties.

The blaze charred the outside of the structure and sent grey smoke drifting over a major development known as Jumeirah Lakes Towers, a cluster of high-rise apartment buildings and shops on the southern edge of Dubai.

Civil defence officials did not give immediate details on the cause of the pre-dawn fire.
