In Guangzhou, in southern China, firefighters could not extinguish the flames for half a day, which opened an unfinished high-rise in the city center. We publish unique photos from the real hell.

The fire in the 25-storey Jianye Mengshen skyscraper started at 18:55 on Sunday, December 15, and was extinguished only in the morning. During this time, the building burned down completely.

According to Southern Metropolis Daily, the building began to be built in 1995 as a residential building with expensive apartments, but in 1998 construction work was frozen, and since then it has been used as a giant warehouse for clothes and shoes.
