Firefighters worked for hours to extinguish the fire, while ambulance and medical teams cared for the wounded who had survived the blaze. The tragedy has been felt across Iraq, with grieving families mourning the loved ones they lost in the fire. Reports indicate that the death toll could be even higher as many were unaccounted for after the blaze. This event is a reminder of how quickly a disastrous event can occur and of how rapidly a party can turn into a graveyard.
