Fire in Mexico Border – How it unfolded

The News comes from reliable sources confirming that the fire broke out tentatively at midnight prompting rescuers and firemen to rush to the spot to douse the fire. The Fire in Mexico Border happened in the Mexican City of Ciudad Juarez which is very much close to the Texas city of El Paso in the United States.

Media sources, on condition of anonymity, confirm that the death toll might be around 70 as per the count provided by the eye-witnesses. The El Paso border in Texas on the US side has numerous undocumented migrants who wish to get into the United States and wait for a long to succeed in doing so.

 Response of Mexican authorities to Fire on Mexico Border

A recent report by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) states that since 2014, some 7,661 migrants have died or disappeared en route to the United States, while 988 perished in accidents or while travelling in subhuman conditions.

The Attorney General’s Office in Mexico has officially launched an enquiry to ascertain the cause of the fire and the investigation team is currently pursuing the same on an emergency basis. Injured people have been taken to four hospitals, according to the newspaper. Neither Mexico’s National Immigration Institute nor the Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office responded immediately Tuesday to requests for confirmation.

Images from the scene of Fire in Mexico Border showed rows of bodies lying under shimmery silver sheets outside the facility in Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas. Ambulances, firefighters and vans from the morgue could also be seen.
