Residents of the Teatinos area of Malaga were alarmed on Wednesday night by the apparent sighting of flames in the tower of the Faculty of Education Sciences and Psychology of Malaga University.

Photos and videos of the 'fire' spread quickly on social media but the fire service was quickly able to confirm it was a false alarm.

It is unclear what caused this apparent optical illusion.
