1 man dead, 7 in­jured in high-rise condo fire

The Palm Beach Post - - OBITUARIES -

A deadly fire in a high-rise con­do­minium had fire­fight­ers pulling peo­ple off bal­conies as smoke quickly spread early Tues­day. One man was killed, seven res­i­dents were hos­pi­tal­ized and about 100 peo­ple have been dis­placed from the build­ing.

Pompano Beach spokes­woman San­dra King says fire­fight­ers ex­tin­guished the blaze on the seventh floor of the 15-story In­tra­coastal Tower Condo early Tues­day.

A res­i­dent who was able to safely get out told fire­fight­ers that she walked out of the bath­room and found her apart­ment on fire.

Smoke spread quickly down the hall­way. King says fire­fight­ers pulled three peo­ple from seventh-floor bal­conies.
