Barcelona, Spain — A fire broke out at a hotel in Barcelona on Saturday, forcing at least one person to safely jump out of a window on the third floor. The Spanish paramedics said the fire injured nine people, one of whom was seriously injured.
Catalan television showed footage that appears to have been taken by a single cell phone jumping through a window on the third floor to a mattress piled up on the sidewalk to cushion the impact. Local media reported that at least one more person had to jump out to escape the flames.
Black smoke is pouring through the windows of a hotel in the central district of PobleSec.
Paramedic spokesman Zulma Itza said that in addition to one man in crisis, two others are in serious condition.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
