Several floors of the 676-unit building-called Torch Tower-were quickly engulfed in flames, including fires that started when falling debris ignited lower levels.

Meanwhile, the officials have cordoned off the area near the building to ascertain the security of the people.
The Torch Tower was the site of a massive fire in February 2015, reports CNN.
