"Fire destroys museum in São Paulo," writes Brazilian daily Folha de S. Paulo on its front page Tuesday, featuring a photograph of the fire destroying part of São Paulo's historic "station of Light" on Monday afternoon.
The "estação da Luz," one of the city's main railway stations, was built 148 years ago and houses the museum of Portuguese language, which was left severely damaged.
Working in heavy rains, it took firefighters almost three hours to contain the blaze that killed one firefighter. The fact that the museum is closed on Mondays likely averted many more casualties. It's still unclear what caused the fire.
