A fire broke out in a yeshiva building in Ramat Beit Shemesh, causing extensive damage to property

A fire broke out this morning (Friday) in a building used as a Sternbuch yeshiva on Habakkuk Hanavi Street in Ramat Beit Shemesh. Fire crews rushed to the scene, found a well-developed fire in the building and immediately began firefighting operations and at the same time searched for trapped people, and fire control was soon achieved. The incident ended with no casualties but heavy damage was done to property. The commander of the Beit Shemesh station, Deputy Chief of Staff Reuven Yitzhak, ordered the establishment of a special investigation team to investigate the circumstances of the fire.

Rabbi Reshef Kobi Tobol, shift commander who commanded the fighters’ actions: "When we got to a place we found a large fire in the room used as a dining room. It is too early to determine the circumstances of the fire, but according to the suspicion, it appears that the fire was caused as a result of an electrical failure that began in the main electrical cabinet at the scene.".
