"It is still a search and rescue operation. It is important we try and find as many people as possible."

Ms Angel Namaala, who resides in the street, said there was "this big thud, like an earthquake".

"The building had gone down and people were trying to help where they could by taking the bricks off. But the fire was getting bigger and bigger so people were told to leave the scene."
