As many as 10 people were killed and few others injured when a fire breaks out in upmarket 16th district of southwest Paris in France.

According to information received, about 30 people, including six firefighters, were also injured. An investigation has been opened into the criminal charge of causing death by arson, amid fears that the toll could climb further. Several streets were cordoned off by police and fire crews.

In a tweet, President Emmanuel Macron condoled the loss of lives and lauded the firefighters for saving people. The fire is the most deadly since 2005 when an arson at a building in the 13th district of the city killed 17 people, including 14 children.
