Fire breaks out at migrant detention center on US-Mexico border, killing 39
On March 28, at least 39 people died in a fire at a migrant detention center in Mexico's northern border town of Ciudad Juarez, reports CNN.
Authorities said the fire at the office of the National Institute for Migration (INM) occurred after they removed about 71 migrants from the streets of the city.
Mexico's National Institute of Migration did not disclose the cause of the fire or the nationality of the victims.
“It is with deep sadness and grief that we learned of the fire that occurred inside the INM in Ciudad Juarez,” Ciudad Juarez federal deputy Andrea Chavez tweeted on March 28.

“We will wait for official information and from now on we express our condolences to the families of migrants. FGR initiated an investigation,” Chavez said.
Body bags were lying near the site of the fire, which was extinguished, according to a witness. Witnesses added that most of the migrants in the center were Venezuelans.
The fire has become one of the worst in recent years in Mexico, which has a record number of border crossings with the United States.
