Summary
Elevators turn into crematoria, rooms explode into a living hell, and one by one, avenues of escape disappear. The celebrated opening of the world's tallest skyscraper turns into horrifying disaster as a holocaust leaps up and traps hundreds. A fireman and the building's architect lead the rescue efforts, but the protechnics remain the center of attraction
