Fire at the City of Samba in Rio de Janeiro

I just saw a Tweet by Veja that said the City of Samba is on fire! The city of Samba is where floats and such for the samba teams are stored. These floats are absolutely amazing and take major time and money to build.  This is a huge loss for these teams.

The teams targeted by the fire were Portela, União da Ilha do Governador e Grande Rio.  The original article is here:

Fire fighters arrived on the scene at 730am. There's a lot of smoke and it will take some time to figure out the extent of the damages.

Thank you Veja for the above photo.
