Flames: National Museum Rio de Janeiro
20 Million Historical Items
A huge fire ravaged Brazil’s 200-year-old National Museum Sunday night, destroying most of its collection of 20 million historical items and invaluable artefacts.
Firefighters worked to put out the blaze at the esteemed National Museum in Rio de Janeiro overnight, which houses artifacts from Egypt, Greco-Roman art and some of the first fossils found in Brazil.
There is no word yet of the possible cause, nor the exact extent of damage, however a Roman fresco which survived Pompeii is believed to be among the items destroyed in the fire.
Images broadcast on Monday shows firefighters still working on putting out the flames inside the smoking shell of the building.

Sooner than mankind thinks God is going to destroy the elements of the Universe with fire.
Fire when burning with great flames roars. In the same way, the heavens we see will “disappear with a roar” as the fire of God’s judgment rages forward.
All of man’s works. His art, his music, his labors, his awards, his trophies, his diplomas, his accolades, his wealth, his injustices, his impurities, his hates, his twists and turns, his likes and dislikes, all, as in everything is going to be destroyed by fire.
By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.
The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be?
You ought to live holy and godly lives 2 Peter 3:7-11
You would think mankind, which includes womenkind, would fear God, clean themselves up with repentance and “live holy and godly lives.” But, alas, it is not so.
