At least five firefighters died Wednesday while trying to extinguish a blaze at a warehouse in a neighborhood in the southern section of Buenos Aires, Argentine officials said.
The firefighters were trapped when a wall collapsed at the warehouse in the Barracas neighborhood, officials told Efe.
Dozens of firefighters and police officers are on the scene, working to control the blaze.
The fire destroyed the warehouse, but it has not spread to neighboring homes.
