State media reported 24 others were injured.

The authorities are investing the cause of the fire that had started in the early hours of Monday morning.

Safety standards for buildings in China were recently reviewed after a big fire started in November killing 58 people. A thorough investigation of the blaze indicated that the unlicensed welders had accidentally ignited netting around the building.

Beijing’s Communist Party secretary, Liu Qi, and the city’s mayor, Guo Jinlong, have told investigators to “rapidly establish the cause”, Xinhua news agency reported.
