A fire broke out at a luxury hotel in the Greek capital, Thursday, December 5, with firefighters using ladders to help evacuate the building. At least three people were injured, authorities said.
It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the blaze at the Athenaeum Palace or how many people were inside the hotel when it broke out. The fire department said it had deployed 35 firefighters with 12 vehicles, who managed to bring the fire under partial control shortly after it broke out.
