The French prosecutor's office says the death toll in suspected arson attack on a Paris residential building has risen to 10.

The fire, which broke out on the second floor of an eight-story building as people slept Tuesday morning, quickly rose and engulfed the building.

Firefighter spokesman Captain Valerian Fuet says 30 people, including eight firefighters, are among the injured.

If the suspicions are confirmed, it will be Paris' worst arson attack in years.
