A massive fire ripped through a building in São Paulo, Brazil, early Tuesday, leaving at least one person dead. The fire broke out at about 1:30 a.m. As firefighters worked to contain the flames, chunks of fiery debris rained down. Hours after the blaze started, the 20-story building collapsed. Local station Globo TV captured the scene of crumbling floors.

At least one person was reportedly killed. Witnesses heard someone calling for help on an upper floor when the building collapsed. At least two others are considered missing, according to a spokesman for the São Paulo Fire Department.

 Officials say it will take days to clear the debris.
