The 48-story high-riseÂ Abbco Tower in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) caught fire Tuesday evening, sending flames shooting up the sides of the building.
The structure, located inÂ Sharjah, had flaming debris falling off of it into the parking lots below. At least seven people suffered minor injuries.
The 623-footÂ tower is among the tallest buildings in Sharjah, one of the seven sheikhdoms that are a part of the UAE.
Authorities have yet to determine a cause of the blaze. Firefighters used a ladder truck to spray water into the buildingÂ in an attempt to extinguish the flames.
