Residents are rescued from the burning Royal Court Apartment Early Monday morning.

BANGKOK — Six people including a baby girl were injured when a fire tore through an apartment early Monday morning in a small lane in Ratchathewi district.

The blaze ignited at around 1am on Monday and damaged an area between the third and fourth floors of Royal Court Apartment located just off Rama VI Road. Firefighters found it difficult to combat the flames due to the narrow lane where the building is located, but they were able to get it under control after two hours and rescued six people trapped inside.

The cause of the fire was not yet determined.

A 1-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy were among six injured people transferred to the hospital for treatment.
