Huge fire engulfs 33-storey block of flats - Residents escape to roof.

A HORROR blaze has ripped through a 33-storey tower block in South Korea sending burning debris tumbling to the ground below.

Shocking images and videos posted online show giant flames engulfing one side of the apartment building - which is home to around 130 families.

The inferno - believed to have started on the 12th floor at 11pm local time(3pm UK)- quickly swept through the block in the Dal Dong district of Ulsan.

Reports say firefighters managed to clear most of the residents out of the building before the huge fire took hold.

However, emergency crews say at least 15 people were injured during the terrifying incident.

Others had to be rescued after climbing onto the roof to escape the flames, say reports from the scene.
