CAIRO, Feb .12. (SEE) – Seventeen people died in a fire today, at a hotel in western New Delhi, that left four injured. The injured were taken to local hospitals, but their medical conditions were not immediately known.

Rescuers had to use the windows to reach people because the corridors made of wooden panels that worsened the fire were blocked. The rescue took about 30 minutes because fire engine ladders could not initially reach the floor.

Satyendar Kumar Jain the Delhi government cabinet minister of health and urban development, announced that most of the deaths at the ”Arpit Palace Hotel” were due to suffocation.

The five-story hotel had a makeshift sixth floor built on top of the roof out of fiberglass.

The hotel is located in Karol Bagh, an area in India’s capital city full of shops and budget hotels that is popular with tourists.
