Fortunately, no injuries were reported. Police have advised motorists to avoid the area, as Tower Road is currently closed to traffic.

A guest from the Netherlands visiting Malta with her family told ToM that they were on the eighth floor when the fire broke out.

“The lift wasn’t working, so we used the stairs,” she said. Emergency services quickly responded to the scene and managed to bring the fire under control.
