AKIPRESS.COM - Five teenage girls have died after a fire broke out while they were playing an escape game in northern Poland, BBC reports.
A 25-year-old man was seriously injured in the blaze which started at around 17:00 local time (16:00 GMT) in the city of Koszalin on Friday.
The cause of the fire is not yet known, but officials are carrying out safety checks on every escape room in Poland.
The five girls who died, all 15, were celebrating a friend's birthday when they visited the attraction.
Escape rooms, in which participants are locked in a room and must solve a series of puzzles in order to get out, are popular around the world.
The industry has grown rapidly in recent years. In the UK, the number of escape rooms has soared from just seven in 2013 to more than 1,000 as of last year.
