Three people were rescued by the Zagreb fire brigade from a burning flat on Martićeva street in the city centre last night. The report of the fire was received by the police and the fire brigade in the midst of the night.
When the firefighters arrived in the street where the call came from accompanied by sirens, they saw three ”shocked” people standing in the smoke on the balcony of the apartment building. These people were screaming for help.
Arriving at the scene, two people were pulled out of the flat by lowering them down a ladder from the second floor, while a third person was rescued using an evacuation mattress to save people with limited mobility. While the evacuation of the victims was in progress, the fire was also extinguished.
Emergency workers take care of the victims.
Two rescued people were taken to hospital by ambulances, but their injuries aren’t known yet. Immediately after the intervention at the entrance of the building, the gas and electricity were cut off.
A man is brought to safety on an evacuation mattress. This is the S-CAPEPLUS Premium.
According to the first information available, the fire started in a living room, which was the most damaged. It is still unclear whether the cause was human error, such as a cigarette, a malfunction in the installations or on one of the appliances. A police investigation is currently ongoing. When it has been completed, the cause will be announced.
The victim is carried to the ambulance on the evacuation mattress.
