Molotov cocktail hurled into Paris restaurant, 3 suffer serious burns: reports
Firefighters were called to the restaurant, located in a five-storey building, just before 8:30 p.m., French newspaper Le Figaro reported.
Paris-based reporter Clement Lanot tweeted that two of the victims were in serious condition, citing a spokesperson.
The fire was the result of a botched robbery attempt, Lanot said, adding that the restaurant was completely destroyed.
Terrorism has been ruled out as a factor, Le Dauphine libere reported.
