Blaze devastates Sao Paulo's Campo Belo district

Text size Aa Aa

At least 2000 people have been made homeless by a large fire in a poor suburb of Sao Paulo in Brazil.

The mostly wooden homes of the favela offered little resistance to the flames, which destroyed or damaged 80% of the homes in the Campo Belo area. Firefighters were hampered in their efforts by a lack of available piped water.
