Brazil museum fire: ‘incalculable’ loss as 200-year-old Rio institution gutted | World news | The Guardian

It sounds like a victim of austerity in Brazil. Some of the fire hydrants didn't even have water. They had to bring in water trucks.

Quote:
[Luiz Duarte, another vice-director] said that governments were to blame for failing to support the museum and letting it fall into disrepair. At its 200th birthday in June, not one state minister appeared. For many years we fought with different governments to get adequate resources to preserve what is now completely destroyed, he said. My feeling is of total dismay and immense anger.
Quote:
Some Brazilians saw the fire as a metaphor for their countrys traumas as it battles terrifying levels of violent crime and the effects of a recession that has left more than 12 million people unemployed.
