Seventeen die in Delhi hotel fire

At least 17 people died and three were injured when a massive fire broke out at a hotel in New Delhi on Tuesday.

G.C. Misra, Delhi fire brigade director, said the blaze had been brought under control and that 35 people were rescued by firefighters in an operation lasting several hours.

Jain, who visited the Arpit Palace Hotel told reporters that he has also directed the fire department to inspect buildings which are five floors or more and submit a report on their fire safety compliance within a week.

Sunil Choudhary, Deputy Chief, Fire Officer speaking to ANI said, "Fire has been doused".

The inferno was reported in the early hours of Tuesday, with videos showing the top floors of the building consumed by flames. Some were injured and have been taken to hospital.

Fire was reported on the third and fourth floor, but the blaze spiralled down as well.

Hotel Arpit Palace was the location of the fire in Karol Bagh.




Paul says 35 people were rescued from the hotel.

Frequent raids by civic authorities to enforce building codes, fire safety measures and evacuation procedures have failed to curb violations in a rapidly expanding city of more than 18 million people.

Generally, four floors are allowed for such establishments, the minister said.

A number of hotel guests have been killed, including a child, when they were suffocated in smoke from a severe fire that ripped through a hotel.

The Delhi government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the incident, Cabinet minister Satyendar Jain said.

In December, six people were killed when a fire engulfed a hospital in Mumbai, the capital of western Maharashtra state.

Unconfirmed reports say the death toll is likely to rise as numerous injured jumped from the burning building to the ground.
