Istanbul, fire in Kağıthane

Two fires burn two buildings in Istanbul in just a few hours

A fire that broke out this morning around 3:00 a.m. local time in the Kağıthane district, north of Istanbul, completely burned down a 3-story building in the Çeliktepe neighborhood, after a fire broke out in the attic for reasons that are still unknown. Fortunately, the event did not leave victims since the residents, alerted by the neighbours, evacuated the building in time.

A few hours later, around 6:30 in the morning, another fire broke out on the upper floor of a 4-story residential building located in the Beyoğlu district, in the heart of Istanbul; in this case, the fire burned completely the attic of the building, located in the Kocatepe neighborhood, and there were no casualties either thanks to the rapid intervention of the firefighters.
