Lots of video from last (Thursday) night’s fire at an apartment building under construction in Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. Many of the videos also show the collapse of a construction crane during the fire.

Mandy Locke, The News & Observer:

A massive fire broke out Thursday night at an under-construction apartment building in downtown Raleigh, at the site of the former Greyhound Terminal.

Shortly after 10 p.m., Raleigh Fire and Police Department personnel responded to a multi-alarm fire on Harrington Street between Lane and Jones streets, about a block away from the 42nd Street Oyster Bar.

Fire was consuming an apartment building under construction. Fire crews surrounded the complex, dumping water from extended ladders to try to keep the flames from jumping to nearby buildings.
