PRAGUE-A fourth person has died from injuries sustained in a fire on Saturday at a hotel in central Prague, a hospital spokesman said.

"I can confirm we could not help two people", Prague ambulance spokeswoman Jana Postova said.

It is believed they were mostly treated for smoke inhalation at the scene and not taken to hospital.

The fire broke out on Saturday evening at the Eurostars David Hotel, situated on a narrow street a block away from the Vltava River.

Forty people were evacuated from the building, seven reportedly in grave condition during the blaze, which happened at the capital city hotel, which is near Czech's National Theater. "Two needed lung ventilation".

"Three people were resuscitated", Kolouch said, adding, "One has already managed to restore circulation'".

Prague mayor Adriana Krnacova, at the scene, expressed her condolences to relatives of the victims.

A cause of the fire, which began at 5pm GMT, has not yet been established.
