Sharjah 48-story high-riseAbbco Tower caught on fire

The 48-story high-rise Abbco Tower in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) caught fire Tuesday evening, sending flames shooting up the sides of the building.

The structure, located in Sharjah, had flaming debris falling off of it into the parking lots below. At least seven people suffered minor injuries.

The 623-foot 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 building in an attempt to extinguish the flames.
