BREAKING NEWS: Fire in French Bar kills 13


A fire during a birthday party at a bar in the northern French city of Rouen has killed at least 13 people and injured six.

BBC reports that the blaze in the Cuba Libre bar began in the basement room around midnight on Saturday, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.

More than 50 firefighters were called to the fire in the centre of the city.

Mr Cazeneuve said an inquiry was under way. One report suggests candles on a cake may have started the fire.
