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.
