#plascobuilding was a 17-story high-rise landmark building in #tehran, the capital city of Iran. At the time of its construction in the 1960s it was the tallest building in Iran,and was considered an iconic part of the Tehran skyline.The building collapsed on 19 January 2017 during a skyscraper fire.
On 19 January 2017, a fire started on the ninth floor at around 07:50 local time.The building was occupied at the time by its residents, workers at the garment shops, and various tour groups that were being shown around the building. Ten fire brigades arrived to fight the blaze. The combined brigades had been trying to stop the fire for hours—while assuring that the building had been evacuated—when the building's north wall collapsed without warning, leading to the collapse of the rest of the building a few moments later.The collapse was captured on camera by Iran's state-run Press TV, which was filming the #firefighting efforts.
Twenty firefighters have been reported to have been killed.At least 70 others were injured by the collapse, with 23 taken to local hospitals having suffered severe injuries.
