An eight-year-old child is in serious condition and a man and a woman were lightly injured as a result of a building fire in northern Israel Sunday afternoon.

The fire took place in a residential building on Yehuda HaMaccabi Street in Nahariya in northern Israel, near the border with Lebanon.

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT and Nahariya Chapter Head Menachem Goldberg who was one of the first responders at the scene said: "A boy, approximately 8-years-old, ran out of the burning apartment prior to the arrival of emergency teams."

"The boy was suffering from burns and severe smoke inhalation. Together with other EMS personnel, I treated a man and a woman who were extricated from the burning apartment by firefighters. Both of the adults were lightly injured and were suffering from smoke inhalation. All three were treated at the scene and then rushed to the Galil Medical Center in Nahariya."
