Buzz Videos has posted an exclusive video on YouTube, displaying a massive fire ball falling down the building with the top of the tower ablaze with flames.
A witness said flames shot out from two sides of the building as glass and metal rained down from near the summit of the structure, which stands more than 330 metres tall.
Around 20 fire trucks extinguished the blaze several hours after the fire alarm went off around 2am on Friday.
