Sixteen heroes

On 19 January 2017, a fire started on the ninth floor of the Plasco building in downtown Tehran. The building completely collapsed after about 3 hours of burning while a large number of firefighters were still trying to put out the fire inside and outside the building. Some of the firefighters were stuck under the rubble caused by the collapse. Sixteen heroes lost their lives in the Plasco building fire. I was there from the first hour of the disaster, having hope for their survival. However, after nine consecutive days, nobody survived. This collection is my documentary narrative of days full of fear and hope.
