Family of six killed in fire at Spanish hotel
Six people have died and another five suffered injuries in a fire at a rural hotel in Northern Spain.
Officials said three adults aged between 35 and 59, as well as three young boys aged between four and six perished in the early morning blaze on Saturday.
The deceased and wounded were from the same family staying at the hotel in Ribera del Arlanza Tordomar.
According to AFP, two people managed to escape the flames.
Ramiro Ruiz Medrano, Interior Ministry spokesman for the region of Castilla y Leon, told AP the fire broke out as the family slept.
He added that those who survived are recovering well.
Spanish officers are investigating the cause of the fire but according to the Daily Mirror, local reports say it began when a sofa close to a fireplace was set alight by a spark.
