33-Storey Building On Fire In South Korea

Huge blaze has engulfed the entirety of a 33-storey apartment block in South Korea.

The fire, which is believed to have started on the 12th floor of the residential building at around 11.07pm local time, has swept through the whole block in the Dal Dong district of Ulsan, a city northwest of Busan.

When the fire broke out firefighters rushed to clear the 136-household block of all residents.

Footage from the scene shows flames reaching high up to the top of the building as large slabs of concrete tumble down to the street below and smoke billows out into the night air.
