The fire that broke out in a building in Ma'aleh Adumim Friday night was caused by an electrical fault, according to an initial investigation.

Firefighters said the fire spread rapidly between floors due to a lack of insulation and caused the stairwell to become a trap for smoke and flames where naturally people flee the scene, leading to the large amount of trapped people.
