Fire 2012[edit]

At 1:30 am on 18 November 2012 a fire broke out at Tamweel Tower, which forced the temporary evacuation of the building.[4] The fire was later proven to have been started by a cigarette butt, discarded by a careless smoker.[5] The building was made uninhabitable by the fire, and is expected to be reconstructed at a cost of Dh78 million. However, as of November 2014, work had yet to begin.[6]
