Fire affects buildings in blocks of Valparaíso of the Congress


A big fire affected three buildings located between Independencia and Canciani streets in Valparaíso, a few blocks from the National Congress.

The incident mobilized all the firemen of the port city, while the surrounding streets were closed due to the possibility of spreading fire to other buildings, and the danger of collapse of structures damaged by fire.

O final balance of the incident showed that there were 33 people affected living in the affected building, and 25 victims working on the ground floor of the property.

Officials at the site asked to evacuate the site, just moments before part of the edge of the building fell on some volunteer firefighters, which left five of them injured.
