5 years ago190 views



A crane atop a high-rise building in Sydney, Australia, caught fire Tuesday (November 27).

The crane was swaying violently before it's arm fell, but it managed to remained attached to the rest of the crane and has not fallen to the ground.

The crane is owned by Lend Lease, the same company that owned a crane that collapsed in New York City during Hurricane Sandy.

Officials say the crane is too high for fire fighters to reach. It's not clear how the fire started.

Local media say hundreds of people were evacuated from nearby buildings, and traffic in central Sydney was thrown into chaos. No injuries have been reported.
