According to the press office of the fire department. damage occurred on Wednesday due to an electrical leak, and Thursday’s evacuation was the result of heating of newly installed breakers.
In both cases, damage to the building set off alarms that led to hundreds of workers exiting the building., so we proceeded to the evacuation of workers.
Thursday’s incident, occurred at 8:30 am, and firefighters attended six people who had nervous breakdowns, and another worker, with a pacemaker, was taken to Santo Tomas hospital, said Iran Ponce, of the Fire Department.
The latest evacuation was the sixth emergency registered in the building this year, caused by electrical problems and a chemical spill, firefighters said.
Each time, traffic on Calle 50, already one of the most congested slow moving routes in the city, was slowed even more.
