There was a major fire in the center of the northern Italian city of Turin on Friday, as a result of which about 100 people were evacuated from their homes.
This was reported by Ansa.
The fire started in the attic of a building near the main train station and soon spread to nearby properties.
The causes of the fire are not yet known.
Dozens of firefighters have been trying to bring the flames under control for several hours.
The fire intensified after the attic collapsed, causing the flames to spread further. Five people had to seek medical attention on the scene: two police officers and an employee who suffered minor burns and bruises, and two residents of the house where the fire broke out.
There were also reports of explosions, probably gas cylinders.
All vehicles parked in the area outside the building have been moved and the entire area has been isolated. Power supplies have been cut off in a large area.
