In the images the flames are observed throughout the block of flats, which causes astonishment of the witnesses. Also, you can see a black smoke and the work of the firefighters while they fight to put out the fire.
According to local media, the fire started on the lower floors and quickly spread until it reached the top of the building. Consequently, all the people inside were evacuated. At the moment, there are no reports of injured people.
Firefighters went to the scene of the incident and managed to control the flames, the cause of which is still unknown. However, they are still carrying out internal and external cooling of the residential building.
The fire took place in the same district where an explosion occurred on Sunday last week in another building, which claimed the lives of three people. The author of the detonation was Mustafa Karahan, a subject who in 1998 murdered four people in Switzerland.
