A cross-departmental investigation has been launched in the southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, after at least 46 people died and another 41 were injured in a fire in that engulfed a building overnight.

The 13-storey building caught fire at about 3am local time (20:00 BST) on Thursday, officials in the city of Kaohsiung said. An earlier fire department statement said the blaze was “extremely fierce” and destroyed many floors.

At least 11 bodies were sent straight to the morgue, the fire chief, Li Ching-hsiu, told reporters. Another 14 people who showed no signs of life were among 55 taken to hospital. In Taiwan, official confirmation of a death can only be made in the hospital.
