Fire rages atop an under-construction skyscraper, planned to be Russia’s tallest building, in Moscow, April 2, 2012. Orange flames were leaping about 880 feet into the air, visible in the night sky to much of the city. No injuries have been reported at the fire in the eastern tower of the Federation Tower complex, part of a massive development along the Moscow River about 1.5 miles west of the Kremlin. The tower, when completed, is to be 1150 feet tall.
