VIDEO: Massive Blaze at Shanty Town in Brazil’s Sao Paolo

Sun May 15, 2016 12:43:00

A large fire was seen burning through a shanty town in Sao Paulo on Saturday.

At least 120 structures in the neighborhood of Paraisopolis were thought to have been destroyed.

Officials earlier said the fire started at around 5pm local time (2000GMT), and that a main street running through the community was closed.

The narrow streets running into the shanty town - or favela as it is commonly known - were reportedly making it difficult for fire trucks to enter.

No casualties have yet been reported, and the origin of the fire has not yet been established, AP reported.
