Four Fire and Rescue Service teams were called to put out a fire that broke out in Yeshivas Torah Or located in Sorotzkin in Yerushalayim . A toaster oven used on a mattress in one of the dormitory rooms led to the mattress catching on fire which spread to the entire room.
Firefighters rescued a number of people trapped from the smoke and fire. They contained the fire – which was burning strongly in one of the rooms – and cleared out the smoke which had accumulated in the building.
MDA teams evacuated thirteen injured persons, of which 10 were minors and 3 adults, to Shaare Tzedek Hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
