This fire happened in August 19, 2005...
That is a historical building in Florianopolis, SC, Brazil. It is the city public market, as we call it. The fire started in the morning and completely destroyed the north section of the building...The firefighters had to be extremely brave to compensate the lack of resources: the hidrant[sic] was dry and they had to use the water from local buildings, the water flow was no where near enough.
That was not the first fire in that building and it was extremely unsafe.

The second set comes from William Kempf. These photos of the damage from a huge explosion at a Big Spring, Texas, oil refinery in February.

You can read more about that recent incident HERE from Fox News.
