Walls of flames swept through Lisbon's historic Chiado district Thursday, devastating much of the 10-block area that has been the commercial and literary heart of the capital since the 18th Century. One person was killed and 43 were injured, officials said. Bottles of butane gas stacked in stores exploded throughout the morning as the flames rushed through the ornate buildings that housed cafes and specialty stores on the narrow, cobblestone streets.
