A large office building in Madrid caught fire late Saturday night, and continued to burn into the early morning hours on Sunday. The building was believed to be unoccupied at the time, due to the late hour, and the fact that it was the weekend. Several of the top floors collapsed sending flaming debris down into the street below.
A spectacular, raging fire engulfed the upper floors of a 32-story office building in downtown Madrid early Sunday, sending flaming chunks of facade cascading to the ground and consuming the building like a candle.

TV footage showed bright orange flames shooting out the sides and top of the Windsor Building, believed to be empty and located near one of Madrid's main boulevards. Muffled explosions could be heard coming from the burning building.

This would not seem to be a terrorist attack, but is another incident in a string of bad luck for Madrid. Although, the source of the explosions within the building has not yet been explained.

Currently the cause of the fire is under investigation, but they believe it may have been electrical in nature.
