SAN SALVADOR (Reuters) - A fire broke out in El Salvador's Finance Ministry on Friday, fire service officials said, and it was not immediately clear whether anyone was trapped inside the building.

The fire services in the capital, San Salvador, posted a photo on Twitter of the office tower with a thick plume of smoke coming out of it.

"Units have been dispatched to a fire in the finance ministry," the tweet said.
