“When we arrived, we rescued the inhabitant of the first floor and another person on the fifth floor, with oxygen masks, via the stairwell,” he added. “These people were then treated on-site and, after checking and ventilation, the other inhabitants were able to return to their home.”

Derieuw concluded that the damaged flat was currently uninhabitable and that the origin of the fire was probably accidental but remains to be determined.
