The fire broke out at a store in Lusong area of Zhuzhou in Hunan province. It was, however, put out by fire fighters, Xinhua reported.

A spokesman said the five victims have been identified and initial investigation showed that the fire was ignited due to a fault in the building's electric circuit.
