Poland fire: Five teenage girls DEAD as blaze rips through escape room adventure game

A FIRE has broken out at an escape room in northwest Poland, leaving five teenage girls dead, local officials have confirmed.

A man was seriously injured by the fire but survived. The inferno broke out at 5pm local time (4pm GMT) on Friday at a party attraction known as an escape room. In escape rooms, users are locked in a room and must answer puzzles and complete tasks to get out.

Firefighters were called to a building in Koszalin, a city in northwest Poland.

The horrific incident happened in a residential building with an escape room inside.

Monika Kosiec, a police spokesperson in the city of Koszalin, said the girls' bodies were found after firefighters put out a blaze in the room.

A 25-year-old man was taken to hospital with burns but could not be immediately questioned by police.

Poland’s Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński said on Twitter: “A devastating tragedy in Koszalin.

“Five joyful girls who were just beginning their lives have been torn from life.
