Digital camera footage of the fire at the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Beijing.
Firefighters have been battling a blaze at the yet to be opened Mandarin hotel. The skyscraper in Beijing is thought to have been set alight by a stray firework set off for China's Lantern Festival.
The luxury hotel was due to open later this year in a complex which also houses the new headquarters of the main Chinese TV company. The building was empty and no one is thought to have been hurt in the fire.
