Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff vowed to rebuild the nation’s Antarctic research station after a fire destroyed the facility Saturday, killing two naval personnel.
A fire at Comandante Ferraz base, on King George Island near a peninsula that reaches up from Antarctica toward the tip of South America, also injured a Brazilian officer, who is in stable condition. The Argentine Air Force aided in evacuating military personnel and researchers over the weekend.
In a statement, Ms. Rousseff offered condolences for the victims and promised to rebuild.
