BEIJING, CHINA — At least 22 people were killed when a two-story residential building in China’s eastern Jiangsu province caught fire on Sunday, according to local reports. 

Investigators discovered traces of gasoline at the scene of the pre-dawn fire and found all the doors of the house locked, according to the national work safety agency.

The house, located in the city of Changshu, about 50 miles northwest of Shanghai, was used as a dormitory for 29 people working at a local restaurant. The residents were mostly migrant workers in their 20s working as waitresses and cooks, the report said.

Three people were injured in the blaze.

It was not immediately known how many people lived in the house.

Police later arrested a man for allegedly setting the residential building ablaze. The suspect was identified as Jiang.

An investigation into the cause was under way and disaster-relief teams have been set up to offer legal and mental support for the families and relatives of the victims, Xinhua said.

So tragic. Our thoughts and prayers are with all involved.

God Bless.
