Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:19 AM

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The developer of a Dubai skyscraper that caught fire on New Year's Eve and burned through the city's annual fireworks display says it will quickly repair the building.

Emaar Properties said Sunday that a team of consultants is already working to repair the damage to the 63-story The Address Downtown tower. Officials also said the building was not fitted with any fireworks for the New Year's display when it caught fire Thursday night.

An investigation into the cause of the blaze is ongoing. Officials say the blaze injured at least 14 people.

Dubai police also released video footage Sunday showing Sheikh Mansour Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the son of Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, working with first responders fighting the blaze as flaming debris dropped around them.
