Firefighters are desperately battling to contain a fire raging through a Trump hotel tower in Azerbaijan.

Six fire engines were on site battling the blaze but there were no reports of injuries.

The fire in the unfinished building started just weeks after a man died in an apartment fire in New York’s Trump Tower.
