Firefighters try to extinguish a fire at a building in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil May 1, 2018.

"We got the call at around 1:30 am (0230 GMT) and we came at once, a few minutes later, and about five floors of the building were on fire", Peixoto said.

The city and state governments have been working for years to forcibly remove squatters from buildings in central São Paulo, with plans for revitalising the area.

Footage of the collapse showed the multi-story building falling on itself as the blaze raged.
