Five teenage girls died when a fire broke out near an escape room in which they were playing Friday in northern Poland, local authorities said.
The Escape Room game, which is popular in the United Kingdom, sees players deliberately locked inside a room or building.
Five people were confirmed dead and a government official said all of them were 15-year-old girls who went to the venue to celebrate one of their birthdays.
Fire officials suspect faulty electrical wiring led to the fire.

Autopsies showed that the girls, who had been celebrating a birthday, died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Brudzinski ordered a Review of the compliance with the fire protection provisions in all of the more than a thousand Escape Rooms in Poland. In addition, on Saturday, the fire protection measures in all the Escape rooms in Poland are to be checked, such as Brudzinski announced. What caused the fire has not been determined. According to initial findings, the fire brigade, the fire broke out in an adjoining room.
The 28-year-old suspect was charged with "deliberately creating the danger of a fire in the escape room and with unintentionally causing the death of people in a fire", said Ryszard Gasiorowski, a spokesman for Koszalin district prosecutor, quoted by the Polish PAP news agency. The spokesperson for the Koszaliner police stressed, however, that one could say nothing to the causes of the fire. The five joyful girls entering the life have been torn out of life.
"We have provided psychological, psychiatric care to the families", Koszalin Mayor Piotr Jedlinksi told TVN.
Warsaw's president Andrzej Duda said the incident was a "crushing tragedy" after the girls died so early in life.
