Five people die in a fire at a building in Paris

Five people have died and at least 42 others were seriously injured in a devastating fire in a building located in Cité du Labyrinthe, a popular neighborhood northeast of Paris. The fire was extinguished shortly after 5.30 am after the intervention of 300 firefighters. For now, the cause is unknown what caused the fire.

The first call originated shortly after 3:00 in the stairs of a five-storey building. "The risk of flames spreading to other nearby buildings have been discarded after two hours of fighting," he assured one of the firemen responsible for ending the fire. The central laboratory of the Prefecture of Police will conduct the necessary investigations to determine the cause of the accident.
