Vague references on Twitter, a couple of blurred photos, rumours of an evacuation......... anyone got anything more definite?

Not heard anything Dean, but I dare say that there are hundreds of catastophes waiting to happen?

My boss has just been instructed by one of the interested Insurers to investigate, so I should know more in due course. Thanks for the heads-up, Deano. Meanwhile, I understand that the Police and/or Civil Defence are keeping nosey parkers away from the scene. Some photos are on the Gulf News website. Doesn't look serious but I guess the Food Court may be closed for a few days.

Just got back from Dubai Mall, no sign of a fire but was stopped going along an area on 2nd floor at the very end of the street as you pass Virgin on your right

Considering what happened recently not so far away, that's got to be one dumb **** behind the camera.

And how difficult is it to find someone who fits that discription in Dubai?
