Around 300 people were trapped on the roof of Hong Kong's World Trade Centre on Wednesday after a fire broke out.

Local media reported that 13 people were injured and taken to hospital, with one woman in a critical condition.

Police said the fire broke out in the machine room and moved to the scaffolding surrounding the building, which is currently under renovation.

Those trapped on the roof have now been rescued, with more than 1,200 people in total evacuated from the building.

Those who were injured are aged between 25 and 60. Local media is reporting that a 60-year-old woman is in a critical condition in Ruttonjee hospital.

All the shops had been vacated during the extensive renovation works, leaving only several levels of the building in operation - mostly restaurants and offices.
