Five people remained wounded as a result of a fire engulfed the prison of Tetovo last night.

Uka Aliti form the firefighter’s department in Tetovo said that two firefighters’ teams have intervened on site and managed to localize the fire within a few hours.

According to him, diesel which is used as fuel in the prison’s basement has spread and this has caused for the flames to break out.

Inmates have also been involved in localizing the fire and five of them have ended up in hospital with burns and wounds.

The Ministry of Interior informed that it will investigate this case. /ibna/
