More than 100 firefighters and 16 fire engines fought the blaze.[4] The building known locally as "Olympus" housed a 5 star luxury hotel and an apartment belonging to French film star and French tax exile Gérard Depardieu, whose apartment was on the 27th floor facing the "Heart of Grozny."[5][6] The structure's interior survived largely intact however and has been fully repaired and reopened as of 2015.
