UAE. A fire broke out Tuesday in the lobby of the Atlantis Hotel, a luxury hotel set to open later this month on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah.

A Dubai Civil Defence official said firefighters have been battling flames in the lobby of the hotel. The cause is not yet known.

The fire broke out at around 7.20am and was contained at approximately 10.15 am, an official was quoted as saying.

The top class resort is developing a Dolphin Bay as one of its main attractions.

"All our staff has been evacuated and there have been no injuries. We are just assessing the damages," a spokesperson said, adding that none of its animals had been affected.
 
In a statement the hotel owners said: "There was limited damage to the external roof and lobby dome this morning as a result of a contained fire at Atlantis, Palm Jumeirah resort."

The statement added that "Atlantis will open on time on 24 September 2008."
