Fire in Beit Hilkiya's Belz Yeshiva


A fire broke out, Sunday afternoon, in one of the buildings of the Belz yeshiva in Beit Hilkiya, east of Ashdod.

The fire broke out on the first floor and thick smoke reached the second floor, from which volunteer medics of the southern branch of the Ichud Hatzalah emergency service helped evacuate the students and give first aid to a number who were lightly affected by smoke inhalation.
