8 People Dead After Fire Breaks Out In Paris

At least 8 people have died after a fire broke out at a residential building in central Paris overnight.

28 others are injured and the eight-story block – which is around two miles south-west of the Eiffel Tower – has been evacuated.

Some people inside climbed onto nearby roofs before being rescued.

The city’s prosecutor suspects a criminal act – and says one woman has been arrested.
