ANKARA 

A fire broke out Monday at a high-rise building in the Nigerian capital Abuja, officials and eyewitnesses said.

The fire started at top of a section of the World Trade Center complex and spread to other parts, an eyewitness told the Punch local website.

In a tweet, the country’s Federal Fire Service said: “Our men are already at the scene.”

The complex comprises a luxury apartment building and offices.

Still under construction, it is expected to be spread over eight high-rise buildings which will include a luxury mall.
