The department said that as of Friday afternoon, a man, a woman and a teenager were found dead in the rubble while two people, a 65-year-old woman and a 15-year-old child, were rescued alive. According to the report of the fire department, the incident occurred at around 6 am local time when one block of the building collapsed completely while the other partially collapsed.
