I hope everything goes well. I recently saw a documentary about Torre Espacio and how they were able to build the building and stuff at Discovery channel.

Madrid firefighters reported that the fire started on a hydraulic oil storage facility in the last floor of the building. The fire did not cause injuries or damage the structure.

They said the fire broke out before midnight and was extinguished 5:30 hours later.

Thanks for the info.

I hope no one was hurt, and that they can continue building without much problem.

Don´t, that fire in Torre Espacio simply was the test of the tallest glass of Olympic flame for the Olympic games of 2016 (later of the biggest Olympic torch del world with the fire of Windsor building for 2012 that Olympic Games finally we lost)
