Tower-Block Ablaze Collapses in Sao Paolo Number of Victims Unknown
A fire broke out at an abandoned building in downtown Sao Paulo on Tuesday.
Evacuees told the police that part of the building's inhabitants managed to escape on time. According to authorities, 400 people were registered as living in the building, which belonged to the government. However, despite the ferocity of the blaze, only one person was listed as nearly certainly dead.
Less than two hours later, the 25-floor building collapsed while Brazilian media were filming. "The building was in ruins; the fire department inspected it a short time ago".
According to the information provided by the Sao Paulo Fire Service, at least 160 personnel and 57 units of equipment were involved in the operation.
Despite an earlier message posted onto the department's official Twitter account suggesting that one person had been spotted calling for help on the building's upper floors, the spokesman says the department does not expect any deaths or injuries. A firefighter told Globo TV that they expected to find victims but did not know how many.
"There is not even a minimal condition for people to live in there", Franca said. The government estimates that almost 4,000 families are living in vacant buildings downtown.
