2 Firefighters died in the Line of Duty and another 15 were wounded after two explosions in a perfume shop in Villa Crespo, Buenos Aires, Argentina on Tuesday. The fire, which was on Argentina’s National Firefighter Day, killed Firefighters Ariel Gastón Vázquez, 27, and Maximiliano Firma Paz, 43, in the Line of Duty. As they were picking up from an initial explosion and fire, there was a second one-that is shown on the below video.
Reports are that the initial run came in at 1700 hours, with an explosion (shown below) one hour later that came from the basement of the perfume shop, called Pigmento. Perfumeries are among the shops considered essential during the coronavirus lockdown in Buenos Aires, as they sell face masks and hand sanitisers. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
