Berlin (dpa / bb) - A person was critically injured in a fire in an apartment in the Berlin district of Steglitz.

Rescue workers found the unconscious person in the burning apartment building and resuscitated them on Sunday night, said a fire department spokesman.

She was then taken to a hospital.

Another person was also rescued from an apartment, but was not injured.

Due to the heavy smoke development, it was still unclear how badly the five-story house was damaged in the fire.

The fire brigade was on site with around 60 emergency services.
