Paris, Feb 5: Ten people were killed after a massive fire broke out at a residential building in the French capital.
The blaze, which took place in an eight-storey block in the 16th arrondissement on Monday late night, injured 28 people.
“10 dead, 1 arrested after Paris fire”, news agency AFP quoted the Prosecutor as saying.
The death toll could increase because the fire is still in progress on the seventh and eighth floors of the eight-storey block, a fire service spokesman told AFP at the spot.
As per the reports, over 200 firefighters are at the incident scene and engaged in controlling the blaze.
