A major fire has broken out at a hotel in Dubai.

Flames can be seen at the address hotel.

Nearby residential homes are being evacuated.

The flames can be seen 20 stories high.

Emergency teams are at the scene.

We’re told the blaze broke out just before a planned New Year’s Eve fireworks display.

It’s thought it’s going to take some time to put the flames out.
