I happened to be staying in a hotel in Sydney last Wednesday when a bigfire broke out in the basement of a high rise building site. We couldn't see the flames - just the thick black smoke and TV news helicopters buzzing about the place.
The development site is at the southern end of the massive Barangaroo redevelopment project of an old port area. It took many hours to bring the fire under control and caused chaos with traffic for the evening peak hour.

Good report with your shot about this fire, perfect frame with buildings and the detail of the helicopter. Well made.

Nice piece of photographic journalism, good detail.
Looks like Darling Harbour.
