    FIVE HUNDRED PEOPLE WERE EVACUATED FROM A BLAZING SIX STOREY BUILDING IN THE BUSINESS CENTRE OF TEL AVIV YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). HELICOPTERS OF THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE WERE USED TO LIFT FIFTY PEOPLE FROM THE ROOF OF THE BURNING BUILDING.

    SIXTY PEOPLE WERE INJURED IN THE FIRE, AND ONE MAN WAS KILLED WHEN HE PLUNGED OUT OF A WINDOW.

    IT TOOK ONLY TWO HOURS FOR THE FIRE TO REDUCE THE BUILDING, OWNED BY THE ZIM SHIPPING LINE, TO A BURNED OUT CONCRETE SHELL. THREE ADJOINING BUILDINGS WERE ALSO DAMAGED.

    FIREMEN WERE HAMPERED BY THE THOUSANDS OF SIGHTSEERS WHO THRONGED THE STREETS TO WATCH THE BLAZE.
