An under-construction skyscraper in Moscow, Federation Tower, which is projected to become the tallest building in Europe after completion, caught fire on Monday.

The blaze ripped through the 67th floor of the partially-built skyscraper lighting up the night sky. As many as 25 fire brigades were at the scene and helicopters were called to drop water from the nearby Moscow River.

The tower which caught fire is called Vostok or East and is part of the Federation Complex. It has a projected height of 360 metres and was expected to be completed in 2013.

Its second tower called Zapad or West is attached to the first one with a 448-metre spire in between and linked by multiple bridges.

There were no causalities and no threat to the building, according to a report by Reuters.
