What Is Going On In Chile? (buildings On Fire)

Sun Feb 04, 2007 4:38 am

In Valparaiso, over a dozen families and some tourists are homeless after a fire that has just destroyed one of that citys two most historic buildings. Already there is one fatality and there could be more as the fire is still ongoing, and other buildings are on fire. The city center is littered with debree and broken glass, and some people are unnacounted for.

And in Punta Arenas, 10 tourists are dead after a fire in a hostel there. The victims include four Germans, two Canadians, and an Argentine family including two children and a pregnant woman. Three firefighters are injured.

Wow, how terrible. Chile is always a very safe place but maybe the fire codes need some serious revisiting.
