One dead and three injured in Barcelona fire

One person died and three other members of the same family were injured in a fire at a home in calle Verdi de Santa Coloma in Gramenet, Barcelona.

The fire occurred at around 03:00 on Friday morning in a fourth floor penthouse flat in an apartment building in Gramenet. The causes of the fire are not yet known.

The father, mother and one of the children suffered burns and are now in the  Vall d’Hebron and Can Ruti hospitals. Another child died after suffering severe burns.

Firemen extinguished the blaze in around thirty minutes, six units being involved in tackling the blaze. Some of the other residents were allowed to return to their homes at 06:00 but, due to damage to infrastructure, those on the upper floors had to find alternative accommodation.
