Others had criticized Poland escape game site where 5 died

Police secure a scene of a fire in Koszalin Poland on Jan. 4 2019. According to reports five 15-years old girls were killed and one man was hurt in a fire that broke out in an 'escape room' as they were trying to solve logical riddles

Five girls aged around 15 were killed in the fire in the city of Koszalin on Friday night, as they celebrated a birthday.

Investigators are probing whether poor electrical wiring and lax security procedures are to blame.

Police and fire officials said they did not yet know what started the blaze in the escape room, which was reported early on Friday evening. Prosecutors said that carbon monoxide inhalation was the likely cause of the deaths.

The move comes as prosecutors presented charges against the man who designed the entertainment site - identified only as Milosz S - with intentionally creating a fire danger and unintentionally causing the deaths of the girls in the city of Koszalin.

He said there was no proper evacuation route and a "lot of negligence" at the location. A spokesman for local firefighters, Tomasz Kubiak, said the units responding to the blaze had to use special equipment and force their way into the locked escape room.

Following a review that took place after the incident, national fire commander Leszek Suski said that more than 100 escape rooms in Poland were found to be unsafe and 13 facilities were immediately shut down.

Escape rooms, in which participants are locked in a room and must solve a series of puzzles in order to get out, are popular around the world. Previously, there was no official requirement for fire safety certificates at such locations.

The teenagers are believed to have been in the same class at school and are understood to have been good friends.

In the case of the injured was a 25-Year-old, said a police spokeswoman.

Since the deaths of the children, there has been a public memorial held at Koszalin Cathedral and in front of the residence where the escape room was held.
