One dead and three missing as Sao Paulo tower block collapses after huge fire

The building was occupied by rough sleepers and up to 50 families were registered as living there, according to Brazilian media.

A rescue mission is under way to find survivors after a tower block in Brazil collapsed during a huge fire.

One person has been confirmed dead and three more are missing after screams for help were heard from the top floor of the building in Sao Paulo.

The tower block was occupied by about 150 rough sleepers and a number of people are thought to be trapped in the rubble, authorities said.

Firefighters were alerted at 1.30am local time (5.30am in the UK). More than 170 firefighters are at the scene, along with a civil defence response team and the army.

Brazil fire: São Paulo building collapses in huge blaze

A 26-storey building has collapsed after being engulfed in flames in Brazil's largest city, São Paulo, killing at least one person.

More than 150 firefighters are battling the blaze which is thought to have been caused by a gas explosion.

The high-rise had been occupied by squatters. Fire authorities said they feared more people were trapped inside.

Witnesses said flames spread quickly from one of the lower floors and set an adjacent building on fire.
'Like a tsunami'

Some 50 families had moved into the building in the Largo do Paissandu area of the city after the federal police force, which had been using it, vacated it some years ago.

The São Paulo newspaper Estadão reported that makeshift living compartments in the building had been constructed from wood, aiding the spread of the blaze through the floors.

Firefighters evacuated the high-rise but as they were taking out the last of the residents the building collapsed, killing one man. One firefighter was injured, Estadão reported.

"It was a matter of seconds but we couldn't save him," firefighter Max Mena said.
