Brazil: Massive fire in 200-year-old National Museum

Sep 03, 2018 08:41 IST

Firefighters are fighting a massive blaze in Brazil's oldest scientific institution. The museum in Rio de Janeiro contains over 20 million items--fossils, art, and artefacts--in its collection. '200 years of work, investigation and knowledge have been lost,' the Brazilian President said in a statement, calling it 'a sad day for all Brazilians.' The cause of the fire is yet unknown.
