Default Tower fire in JVT

Just heard, can't see it from tecom but a mate's put on FB that there's a fire in a JVT tower, saying one person killed while trying to get out on a rope?

Yes it's about 500 metres from my place. Pretty bad fire and a lot of workmen were trapped. But the fire is out now and the guys on the balconies have been rescued using the external lift which takes them to work. Civil Defence fairly slow and didn't appear to know the slip road off Al Khail, so had to turn around and go back. Police chopper came and landed in the car park, still there now.
One fell off and I'm hoping no one else got injured, especially burns.

Civil Defense didn't know there was a slip road?

I watched at least 5 ambulances and 6 fire engines come up Al Khail, ignore the Al Khamila slip road and have to turn round on Al Khail (it was slow moving due rubber neckers anyway) to come back down and get onto the slip which comes right into JVT, in fact right to The Imperial Towers.
