BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two people sustained burn injuries early Wednesday after a fire broke out in their house in the southern West Bank, civil defense forces said in a statement.
Bethlehem's civil defense forces said that fire fighters managed to control a fire that broke out in a family's living room in the al-Saff neighborhood of Bethlehem.
The fire was caused by short circuit in an electric heater, the statement said.
It added that ambulances of the Palestinian Red Crescent evacuated two people, one of whom sustained serious burns all over his body.
