20-Story Apartment Building in Milan Catches on Fire

A 20-story apartment building in Milan, Italy caught on fire on Sunday, August 29th.

According to CBS 46, Firefighter official Giuliano Santagata explained, “I have never seen a situation like this,” he went on to state, “Just look at the facade and you see that everything is completely burned, and therefore presume that it was made of flammable material.”
