A fire in a residential building on Rechov Moshe Pardo in eastern Bnei Brak this evening has left at least four people hurt, one seriously and three moderately.
Among those injured were a 35-year-old woman, who was seriously hurt, and a 55-year-old man and a six-month-old child, who were all taken to Tel Hashomer Hospital.
A teenage girl was taken to the Mayanei HaYeshua Medical Center.
About a dozen people were trapped in the blaze on the upper floors of the building, but they were extricated by emergency personnel. At least two babies were among those removed safely. Several residents suffered from smoke inhalation.
At the scene was Bnei Brak Mayor Chanoch Zeibert.
All are asked to daven for Velka bas Hinda Ofra and her six-month-old son, Aharon Aryeh ben Velka, who were injured in the fire.
