They put the note on the door of almost all of the 579 apartments…

It has been just under two weeks since a fire broke out at the 96-storey Torch Tower in Dubai Marina late on a Thursday night (there was a fire in the same building in 2015), and the residents whose apartments are livable have now returned.

But before they came back, Dubai Civil Defence and the firefighters who fought the blaze put a welcome note on the door on the bulk of the 579 apartments before the residents returned. You can see them doing so here (click to play):

Speaking of Dubai firefighters, let’s not forget this beautiful moment, which happened earlier this year:
