Two children were moderately injured in a fire that broke out early Thursday morning in a residential building in Holon.

Firefighters who were summoned to the scene were able to extinguish the flames. The fire, which broke out on the first floor of a residential building, is believed to have been caused by an electric short circuit.

In total, seven people were rescued from the building. The two children who were moderately injured were evacuated to the Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv. The rest of the victims are in light condition.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
