Just before the people of Dubai ring in the new year, a terrifying fire broke out at a hotel right in the heart of the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration. Kylie Jenner and other celebs have already taken to Twitter to send their love to those who were affected by the scary incident.
Kylie Jenner, 18, may have big New Year’s Eve plans to look forward to, but that didn’t stop her from sending prayers to the people of Dubai. After a 63-story hotel burst into flames prior to Dubai’s big New Year’s Eve celebration and fireworks display, Kylie was one of the first celebs to express her grief over such a horrific incident. See what Kylie and other celebs have said below!
People all around the world were shocked when the Address Hotel burst into flames in the late hours of Dec. 31, especially because it’s near Burj Khalifa, the city’s 903-yard-tall skyscraper. The cause is yet to be determined, but the shocking blaze was suspiciously close to the location where 1.6 tons of fireworks were ready to be blasted in an incredible New Year’s Eve display. As people fled the building and smoke filled the air, celebs like Kylie immediately used social media to send their thoughts to those affected by the terrifying fire.
I hope everyone is okay in Dubai. 🙏🏼
