The Civil Defense teams succeeded in rescuing the guests of the multi-storey “Al Sharq” hotel, which was exposed to a fire, after they had used the double-use ladder vehicle to rescue and extinguish the fire, to take full control over the fire accident and rescue all those in the hotel in Karrada area near the National Theater in Baghdad.

The Civil Defense Directorate said in a statement, “The civil defense teams hurried and carried out direct incursions, while moving the rescue effort through the external windows by means of the ladder vehicle, in conjunction with the operations of extinguishing and cordoning off fire, providing first aid and pulmonary resuscitation for the suffocated, and finished their work without recording human losses.”
