Firefighters were working Friday to douse the embers of a fire that engulfed a 63-story luxury hotel in Dubai on New Year's Eve, injuring 14 people.

After more than 12 hours, firefighters were still on the scene at the Address Downtown, one of the most upscale hotels and residences in Dubai.

The Associated Press reported that at one point Friday firefighters could only watch after losing the use of a water hose from a ladder truck. They later regained water pressure and began spraying the building. Restaurants nearby opened for business, but served limited menus as civil defense officials cut natural gas to the area.

By Friday afternoon, the fire had largely died down, but its embers still sent smoke into the air.
