Fire breaks out at Greece’s tallest building

A fire that broke out Tuesday afternoon in the tallest of the two blocks that comprise the Athens Towers complex in the neighborhood of Ambelokipi, near central Athens, caused a panic among residents and office workers but was brought under control by fire service workers before it could cause any significant damage or injuries.

The fire started in a cardboard box next to an elevator on the second floor of the main tower which, at 103 meters, is the tallest building in Greece.
