Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TEN peo­ple, in­clud­ing a baby, have died in a fire at an eight-storey build­ing in south-west­ern Paris, fire ser­vice of­fi­cials say.

More than 30 peo­ple – in­clud­ing six fire­fight­ers – were in­jured.

One per­son is in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion.

Fifty peo­ple were evac­u­ated by lad­ders from the blaze in the up­mar­ket 16th ar­rondisse­ment.

The Paris prose­cu­tor says it may have been de­lib­er­ately started.

Po­lice have de­tained a fe­male sus­pect.

French Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron said the coun­try “had wo­ken up to tragedy”.
