A massive fire engulfed two tower blocks in Sao Paolo on Tuesday causing one of the buildings to collapse. Earlier reports suggested that one person had died and 150 people were evacuated as a result of the fire, while at least three people were said to be missing.
Local media said, the apartment building was uninhabited, however, according to reports from locals, some squatters lived there.
The preliminary data indicate that the fire started as a result of a quarrel between a married couple who were preparing a meal over a fire, using alcohol as a fuel. They have reportedly managed to escape from the burning building.
