More than 20 people were hurt Friday, some seriously, after a man apparently set fire to a branch of the Commonwealth Bank in Australia, police said.
Paramedics treated 21 people at the scene, an ambulance spokesman said. Most suffered breathing problems but five have serious burns.
“Police responded to reports that a man had allegedly set fire to a Springvale Road bank,” Victoria state police said of the incident in the Melbourne suburb.
“The man has been taken to hospital in a serious condition under police guard.”
Eric Sleuriot, who was nearby, told the Melbourne Age newspaper: “It’s bloody awful. I just can’t believe it.”
