HONG KONG, April 10 — A fire in a residential building in Hong Kong’s bustling Kowloon district disrupted morning rush hour traffic today, authorities said, in a rare incident in the global financial hub that killed five people and injured more than a dozen.

People inside the building waved towels at windows to signal for rescue, broadcaster RTHK said, adding that the fire had started at a gym there. Some surrounding roads had to be sealed off.

The blaze, rated three in the city’s five-grade system, was doused by 8.54am (0054 GMT), an hour after fire services were alerted to the fire in Jordan, an area teeming with homes and offices across the harbour from the city’s financial centre.

At least six of the injured were in serious condition, the hospital authority said, with one critical.
