Officials say the death toll in a hotel fire in downtown has increased to four after two of those injured died in a hospital.

Five people, including the two women who died Sunday, suffered very serious injuries, and another four people were treated by Prague ambulance, its spokeswoman Jana Postova told AFP.

Martin Kavka, spokesman for the Prague fire brigade, said they were called to the blaze at 5pm and it took firefighters two hours to bring it under control.

A further eight people are said to have been injured.

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.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The fire broke out on Saturday evening at the Eurostars David Hotel, situated on a narrow street a block away from the Vltava River. The victims haven't been immediately identified.
