A fire at a garment factory in Tuscany has killed several people and injured two seriously. The victims are likely Chinese immigrants, who play a large role in the region's garment industry.
At least seven people were killed and three injured on Sunday when the fire broke out in a Chinese-owned garment factory in the town of Prato, Tuscany.
The blaze, which partly collapsed the factory's roof, broke out in a loft where 11 people were sleeping, officials said.
More information about the victims' identities has not been revealed. However, a number of Chinese workers at the factory were known to live on-site at the factory.
So far there is no official explanation for what caused the blaze.
The flames were brought under control by fire authorities by midday on Sunday.

Bayern Munich has landed another coup, shortly before the end of the summer transfer period. Real Madrid's Xabi Alonso is set to join the record-breaking German club. The last-minute deal was confirmed on Friday.
