The Hungarian Disaster Management Agency told the Hungarian News Agency (MTI) today morning that a sauna in a two-storey building caught on fire in the 2nd district of Budapest.
Péter Kolozsi, the deputy spokesperson of the disaster management agency, told MTI that a sauna on the ground floor was on fire. The flames devoured 20-30 square metres of the bath, he added. Magyar Hang reported that firefighters managed to extinguish the fire and were ventilating the building covered in smoke at 9-10 am this morning. Beforehand, they emptied the bath. Based on their report, two people needed medical attention. MTI said that
a sauna in the famous Szent Lukács bath was on fire this morning.
