The flames, which most likely started from the kitchen, generated a dense cloud of smoke that invaded the entire building, forcing the evacuation of residents. Two fire brigade teams with ladder trucks and tank trucks, the carabinieri of Fidene and the 118 ambulances intervened on the spot. The rescuers rescued a woman of about 40 years, residing in the apartment where the fire broke out, She was then admitted to the Sant’Eugenio hospital for burns to her legs.
No one else was injured or poisoned, but the apartment from which the fire started was completely destroyed and the adjacent ones suffered damage. The firefighters, once the building has been made safe, will have to ascertain the causes of the fire and verify that there is no structural damage before allowing the families to return to their homes.
