On site, the firefighters had to deal with the incident in a very crowded apartment which overlooks an interior courtyard that is quite difficult to access. The fire was extinguished in about half an hour. The occupant of the apartment was rescued. 17 people were inconvenienced.
But the upstairs neighbor, on the 3rd floor, jumped out the window, perhaps panicking. He was taken to hospital in a state of absolute emergency.
The firefighters are busy emptying the apartment with many charred items, to prevent any new outbreak of flames.
