British holidaymakers watched in horror as a fire broke out in a 17-storey residential tower block very close to their hotel yesterday afternoon.

One guest filmed smoke billowing from the tower and posted footage showing the pool area of the Gran Hotel Bali in the foreground, causing alarm as some Facebook users mistakenly thought the hotel itself was on fire.

In fact, the fire was on the ninth floor of a residential building in Calle Asturias, not far from the hotel.

One man was injured in the blaze and his neighbour’s dog died.

Other residents were evacuated while fire fighters tackled the blaze at around 5.40pm yesterday.
