Nightclub fire kills at least 13 in Murcia in Spain
At least 13 people have been killed in a fire in a nightclub in Murcia in southeast Spain, emergency services said on Sunday, adding that rescuers were still searching for people unaccounted for after the blaze.
Outside the club, young people hugged, looking shocked as they waited for information after the fire that broke out in the early hours in Atalayas, on the outskirts of the city.
Spanish media reported that several of the dead were from one group that was celebrating a birthday.
Diego Seral, of Spain’s National Police, told reporters the dead were found in the Fonda Milagros nightclub, one of three adjoining clubs, which had sustained the majority of fire damage, including the collapse of its roof, he added.
The collapse was making it difficult to locate victims, and it was difficult to pinpoint yet where exactly the fire started, he said.
