Toulouse, France: Twenty-two people were injured, two seriously, when a fire swept through an apartment building in the southwestern French city of Toulouse, the fire service told AFP on Thursday.

Part of the four-storey building collapsed and guests from a neighbouring hotel were also evacuated, said fire lieutenant-colonel Sylvain Gergaud.

"The fire spread very quickly through the lift shift," he said.
Two firemen were among the casualties.

The blaze had been brought under control by daybreak.
