    Iran's oldest high-rise collapses after fire

    Iran's oldest high-rise in southern Tehran collapsed on Thursday morning following a major fire in the building, leaving dozens of people injured.

    The 17-story structure crumbled after the fire engulfed the top floors of the building in downtown Tehran as scores of firefighters battled the blaze.

    The Fars news agency and the IRIB news website said at least 30 firefighters were feared to have been killed in the incident but officials did not confirm any deaths.

    The head of Tehran's emergency services told IRIB that at least 70 people have been injured and 23 hospitalized.

    Tehran Mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf said between 20 to 25 people are believed to have been trapped under the rubble.

    Fars said a firefighter had texted a message to a colleague, saying he was alive and trapped with several others at the building's engine room.

    Officials have not given the exact number of casualties so far.

    Firefighters battled the blaze for several hours before the collapse as police kept out shopkeepers and others trying to rush back in to collect their valuables.

    Who is responsible for this? no control from local government, not following the rules by the owner of the building?
    There is everyday tragedy in Iran. 1400 peope die every month because of car accidents, as if we're fighting a war!

    A very sad incident. My deepest condolences to Iran and I pray for the injured and wish them a quick recovery and for those who have passed I pray they be given a place in heaven and their families the patience to bear this loss.
