Four people were killed and 19 feared trapped by a major hotel fire in the Philippine capital Manila on Sunday, with others plucked from the rooftop by helicopter, authorities said.

Yu said there are indications that the blaze could have started either at the mezzanine floor of the hotel or at the casino area, but the circumstances are still unclear.

Chung let four break points slip in the opening game of the second set and he was punished, Federer rolling out to a 4-1 lead. Then again in the third set, I had two times break, you know. "I'm really honored to be number one Asian", Chung said.

Almost two dozen people were injured in the blaze at the Manila Pavilion Hotel, said police and rescue officials.

Margarejo said one of the supposed fatalities was revived at the Manila Doctors' Hospital where nine other victims, including the dead, were brought. "That is our enemy now - the smoke and the wind - which is why our firefighters are having a hard time", Yu told reporters.

Yu said about 20 more people were trapped inside the hotel as rescuers scoured the building. A fire broke out Sunday morning at the hotel in Manila, the Bureau of Fire Protection said.
