Bright orange flames shot out the sides of the Windsor Building, which is near one of Madrid's main boulevards.
The fire started around 11:30 p.m. Saturday and was still burning out of control several hours later. At least nine upper stories were on fire and muffled explosions could be heard in the building.
The cause of the blaze was not immediately known, but &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/region/2003/01/10/41844.html' target=_blank>emergency services spokesman Javier Ayuso said it might have been a short circuit, informs the Guardian.
