Russian skyscraper catches fire, but no injuries

2 firefighting helicopters dumped huge buckets of water on flames before Emergencies Ministry said fire had been stopped from spreading


The News Sentinel

MOSCOW — Huge flames danced for hours on the top floors of an under-construction Moscow skyscraper that is to be Europe's tallest, lighting up the night sky Monday. No injuries were reported in the blaze.

The fire at the eastern part of the Federation Tower complex was visible from much of the Russian capital's western half. Two firefighting helicopters noisily circled the blaze, dumping huge buckets of water on the flames before the Emergencies Ministry said the fire had been stopped from spreading by about 11:30 p.m., some three hours after it broke out.
