A toxic cloud, with a strong smell, invaded, on Thursday (6), the center of Buenos Aires, Argentina, scaring residents and forcing the Civil Defense to evacuate some buildings. The smoke was the result of an early fire in a container loaded with pesticide, the port in Terminal 4 of the Argentine capital.

By late morning, the Secretary of Security of Buenos Aires, Sergio Berni, told a news conference that the situation was under control.

The worst thing is that I did not know what was happening, said in an interview with Agencia Brazil, electrician Daniel Fair, which was doing a service in the city center. Residents of several neighborhoods felt the stench, similar to olive oil and burned in the Retiro district, close to the port, it was possible to see a cloud of yellow smoke.
