Published on : Tuesday, February 12, 2019

A fire broke out at Arpit Palace Hotel located on Gurudwara Road in Karol Bagh. It led to death of at least 17 people which included a child. A call about the fire was received at 4.35 am and 24 fire tenders were rushed to the spot, as per the Delhi Fire Service. Most people in the hotel were sleeping at the time.

 

 

The injured were rushed to three hospitals including the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. Thirteen bodies are at the RML Hospital as per a senior doctor.

 

 

 

A video of the incident showed two people jumping from the fourth floor of the burning building. As per the eyewitnesses, most deaths were caused due to suffocation. It is believed that wooden panelling in the corridors of the hotel contributed to the quick spread of the fire.

 

 

 

The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained. The fire extinguishers were found used which suggested that the people trapped inside tried to douse the fire in a bid to escape.

 

 

A woman and a child, among those dead, were killed when they tried jumping from a window, as per reports.
