A gigantic fire tore through a 200-year-old exhibition hall in Rio de Janeiro late on Sunday, illuminating the night and sending expansive tufts of smoke into the air. Firefighters attempted to put out the burst at the regarded National Museum in northern Rio, which houses relics from Egypt, Greco-Roman workmanship and a portion of the principal fossils found in Brazil. It wasn’t clear how the fire started in the establishment, which is one of Latin America’s biggest common history historical centers. News entry G1, refering to the historical center, detailed that no one was harmed and the fire started after the gallery had shut for the day. Sgt. Moises Torres from the state’s firefighting base camp said firefighters got the call and were dispatched at 7.30pm. He said there was no prompt data about wounds. In an announcement, President Michel Temer said it was “a pitiful day for all Brazilians.” “Two hundred long stretches of work, examination and learning have been lost,” said Temer. In a meeting with Brazil’s TV Globo, the exhibition hall’s chief said it was a “social catastrophe”.
