At least 23 people have died after a fire at a bar in Mexico's southern port city of Coatzacoalcos, NBC News reported early on Wednesday, citing a statement by the office of Veracruz state's attorney general.
The fire, which happened on Tuesday night, killed at least eight women and 15 men, with another 13 people being treated at hospitals after being seriously injured, according to the report https://nbcnews.to/2HucwVg.
The office of the state's attorney general said it was investigating the fire and determining if it was intentional, NBC News reported.
Residents said the fire started on the 15th floor and a big column of black smoke soon enveloped the building. More than 90 people escaped the building on their own or helped by neighbours, they said.
One of the dead was a member of the groups that clashed Monday night at the club in Sorong city and 18 bodies were found after the fire, Adam Erwindi, spokesperson of West Papua Police, said on Metro TV.

The deaths occurred early on Wednesday when the temple chariot procession was underway in Thanjavur district, 340 kilometres (210 miles) south of Chennai, the state capital, police said.
