Fire Forces Evacuation of Broadcast Complex in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – A fire broke out Sunday at the complex housing Argentina’s Channel 13 and other media outlets belonging to the Clarin group, forcing employees to evacuate the facility in a section of southern Buenos Aires, but no one was hurt, the television channel said.

“Fire controlled at Thirteen and TN. No one injured. Thanks to everyone for their concern,” Channel 13 said in a Twitter post.

The blaze forced management to evacuate Channel 13 and the Todo Noticias, or TN, cable network, with both outlets going off the air.

Several fire department units responded to the blaze at the complex operated by Artear, a unit of Clarin, in the Constitucion district.

“The fire affected a warehouse used to store props,” Channel 13 said on its Web site.

The capital’s SAME emergency services department sent several ambulances and about 30 paramedics to the complex due to the huge plume of smoke rising into the air.

Paramedics assisted six people and transported four of them – a firefighter and three Channel 13 workers – to a hospital, SAME chief Alberto Crescenti said.

The four suffered from “smoke inhalation and are out of danger,” Crescenti said.

“Luckily, we don’t have to mourn any fatalities,” Crescenti said.
