This is the third fire that has taken place within one week at the marina area.
A fire broke out at the Marina Torch Tower early last Friday, prompting the evacuation of the 87-storey residential building.
The fire affected 38 apartments, forcing residents to stay in hotels until further notice from the Dubai Civil Defence.
Fire experts from Dubai Police’s forensic department continue to investigate the site, gathering evidence to determine the cause of the blaze.
Police also confirmed that once the process is completed, residents will be allowed to move back into the building.
The minor fire broke out around noon on the 53rd floor of the 73-storey tower, and was brought under control within minutes.
