  • Footage shows fire climbing up the 86-storey The Torch, a residential building popular with expats in Dubai

  • Burning debris could be seen spiralling down to ground firefighters desperately attempt to tackle the flames 

  • Torch Tower is the fifth tallest residential building in the world and stands at more than 330 metres (1,105 ft) 

  • The same skyscraper was devastated by fire in 2015, with the buildings flammable cladding being blamed
