The fires in Jerusalem

Firefighters rescued civilians from a building complex in the Romema neighborhood in Jerusalem overnight Monday after an intense fire trapped several families inside. 
The fire took several hours to get under control, as the team attempted to quell the flames and search for anyone left inside.
"The fire broke out around 4 a.m. in a complex of six buildings," said Eli Edri, who headed the fire-fighting team. "A large number of civilians, [including] some small children were trapped in their houses due to the heavy smoke, and many vehicles caught fire. Several warehouses and apartments also caught fire."

Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion arrived at the scene first thing in the morning and instructed the municipal departments and professionals to stand to the right of the firefighters and residents and immediately begin cleaning and doing maintenance work on the damaged floors.
The work of evacuating the residents is continuing. City staff are present and are working on the site in order to return the lives of the residents to a full routine.
