Seoul: A fire broke out in an eight-storey fitness centre in the scenic South Korean city of Jecheon on Thursday, killing at least 16 people, most of them as they were taking a sauna, a fire station official said.

The fire started in a parked car and spread to the building, he said.

"We've checked 16 dead and more than 10 injured but as the rescue is still in progress, there could be more people dead or injured," he said.

Most of the victims were in the sauna when the fire broke out, the official said.
