Tragedy In Tehran Update - 30 firefighters were reportedly killed during the fire and subsequent collapse of the iconic Iranian high-rise Plasco Building in Tehran. Firefighters had been battling the blaze for several hours when the side of the 17 story building crumbled, the rest of the building following moments later, completely demolishing the entire structure. 50-100 people are believed to be trapped under the rubble. Rescue teams are on scene.
My heart breaks for the people of Tehran on this dark day. Bless the families of the brave firefighters who perished, and may those injured recover quickly.
