The fire started in one of the flats on the ninth floor of the building in Toruń’s Gagarina street on Saturday evening. The fire-fighters were hard at work well into the night, extinguishing the blaze, PAP reported. 

Przemysław Baniecki, a spokesman for the Toruń fire service, told the news agency that “the flat where the fire broke out burnt down completely.”

“In all, twelve flats were damaged by the blaze,” the official added.

The fire service’s spokesman said that 20 inhabitants had to be evacuated, most of whom were able to return to their flats after several hours of the rescue and fire-fighting operation.

The remaining seven persons were offered interim accommodation, but instead opted to arrange temporary shelter themselves, PAP reported.

The three injured people are two female residents who “suffered from smoke poisoning, and a fire-fighter who was harmed when a glass pane broke during the fire-fighting operation,” the Toruń fire service’s spokesman said.

Police are still investigating the cause of the fire, PAP reported.
