Families left homeless after fire destroys three apartments - Five people including 3 firefighters, have been injured after a fire broke out in a residential building in Marseille this morning. Six families have been evacuated as the blaze completely destroyed three apartments shortly after 4am. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Meanwhile a fire in a residential building near Paris on Sunday has left seven people with serious injuries including five children who were in a "life-threatening" condition. Some 16 people including 10 police officers and a firefighter were also slightly hurt in the blaze in Aubervilliers, northeast of Paris, which was later brought under control, the fire service said.

In the same town less than a month ago, a fire in a housing complex killed a mother and her three children aged 18 months to six years, and left nine others injured.
