RIGA, Latvia (AP) — Latvia's rescue service says a second firefighter has been found beneath the rubble of a large supermarket in the country's capital after large sections of the roof collapsed.

The Fire and Rescue Service wrote on its Twitter account that the "night is too tragic" and that the total number of dead is now five and approximately 30 were wounded. The search for survivors is continuing.

The collapse occurred during the busy after-work hours when the grocery store was filled with customers and workers.
