Smoke rises from a fire at a fuel tank storage facility run by Ultracargo in Santos near Sao Paulo April 2, 2015. Eighty firefighters were battling a fire at a fuel tank storage facility run by Ultracargo near Brazil’s port of Santos, Latin America’s largest, the local fire service said on Thursday. The company said there had been no victims from the fire and it was too early to say what had caused it. The fire started at around 10 a.m. local time (1300 GMT), the fire service said on Twitter, adding that 22 fire trucks and one boat were involved in trying to control it. The port of Santos said it had moved five ships docked at a nearby terminal due to the fire. REUTERS/Paulo Whitaker
