Video and photos from March 13th. Once you start playback of the video, hit HQ in the lower right corner for higher-resolution video.

For comparison to that last shot, here's the closest angle I've got from my pre-fire collection.

Photos: Cosmopolitan Fire Update

These first three were taken around 8am on my way to work.

From a moving People Mover.

The rest of these were taken around 11:45am on my lunch break.

See early-morning fire photos here and a February 10th construction update here.

The canal side of the Cosmopolitan apartment complex almost completely burned to the ground this morning. As of this writing, the fire is not out at the center of the complex, but the Senate side still appears to be standing. News is reporting that 125 fire fighters were called to the scene at 3:30am.
