A large fire has broken out in a tower on New Arbat Avenue in central Moscow.
After several hours, firefighters confirmed that the blaze was extinguished. It is thought that no one has been injured.
Authorities suspect that the fire may have been the result of renovation work currently being done on the building known by locals as the ‘Book Building’.
