Two people died and a dozen more were injured Sunday in a major fire at the ski resort of Courchevel in the French Alps, officials said.
The pre-dawn blaze forced the evacuation of some 60 resort workers, including foreigners, from a three-storey accommodation building.
The two bodies were found in the burnt-out building.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known but around 70 firemen had brought it under control by day-break, the local officials said.
