According to the newspaper, despite the fact that 80 fire trucks and helicopters were deployed to the disaster scene, "the emergency services experienced difficulties in extinguishing the blaze as the building is backed by rail tracks."
Dozens of residents were evacuated by helicopter from the building's roof. Police are investigating the cause of the fire, that broke out Saturday morning, and are not ruling out "the possibility of arson."
In an attempt to avoid the fire, some residents jumped from the building's floors. Seven of them are in critical condition.
The fire was completely extinguished in two hours after it broke out. Reportedly, the blaze destroyed some 20 vehicles.
