Global One News (G1) – A fire breaks out at an eight-story building in Paris — and kills at least 10 people including a baby.
It’s being called the most deadly fire in the city since 2005 and a 40-year-old woman is accused of intentionally starting it.
The blaze sparked overnight Tuesday, Feb. 5 at this apartment building where you can see flames leaping from windows and walls.
Residents in pajamas were running to save their lives while others were trapped.
Authorities arrested the 40-year-old woman, who was reportedly inebriated at the time and have accused her of intentionally starting the fire.
A Parisian prosecutor said the woman has had “prior psychological problems.”
The suspect’s neighbor told a local newspaper he thought this was an act of revenge after his girlfriend had knocked on her door to ask the woman to turn down loud music.
Over 30 people – including six firefighters – were injured.
One is in serious condition.
Surrounding buildings were also evacuated during the blaze.
