At least ten people have died in a fire at an apartment block in Paris.

The blaze broke out overnight at a residential building in a wealthy part of the French capital.

The district is home to famous museums and some of the city's wealthiest residents.

A 40-year-old woman has been arrested in relation to the suspected arson attack.

Prosecutors say the suspect lives in the building.
