An apartment fire on September 2 left eight dead, including two children, in Paris. Police investigations are currently underway into the cause of the fire as suspicions rise on the incident as intentional.

France’s Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet stated to French media that the firefighters extinguished the small paper fire around 12:23 a.m. (GMT) in the building, located at the foot of Paris’ famed Montmartre hill and that the firefighters were called back two hours later, for a new fire that began in a ground floor stairwell and quickly engulfed the building’s upper stories.

France’s Interior Ministry spokesman also noted that some of the victims lost their lives leaping from the burning building’s windows.

According to reports, over 100 firefighters have been on scene to extinguish the second fire.
