A massive fire tore through a 26-story building in San Paulo, Brazil, Tuesday morning. The building collapsed after being engulfed in flames, killing at least one person. 

More than 150 firefighters are battling the blaze. The high-rise had been occupied by squatters, and firefighters fear more people may have been trapped inside.

The fire started at 01:20 local time with the flames spreading quickly. The high-rise collapsed 90 minutes later.
