    At least 39 people have died after a fire broke out at a migrant facility in the Mexican northern border city of Ciudad Juarez.

    Hours after the fire broke out late on Monday, rows of bodies were laid out under shimmery silver sheets outside the facility, across from El Paso, Texas.

    Ambulances, firefighters and vans from the morgue swarmed the scene.

    At least 29 people were injured, according to an official from the National Immigration Institute, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Ciudad Juarez is a major crossing point for people entering the United States. Its shelters are full of migrants and refugees waiting for opportunities to cross or who have requested asylum in the United States and are waiting out the process.

    Mexico’s attorney general’s office has launched an inquiry and has investigators at the scene, according to media reports.
