Wilson Augusto, a resident of the sector
"He sat on the steps of the San Francisco Church and sounded very powerful, and a lot of smoke came out.
I went to help people who left the building. Then they started to play soft, but very close firecrackers. The atmosphere was depressing. The firefighters began to extinguish the candle that was in the building. "
Dealers from Cali center
"I was approaching the headquarters of the prosecutor's office when there were more explosions, I was too scared, people panic and running in different directions," says one trader.
Another owner of the business near the venue said, "I sold candles right next to the building when they started exploding the glass of the second floor, I did not notice anything but just run out."
