Revelers were celebrating the new year when the blaze broke out in the early hours of Thursday morning.
It was believed the fire was caused by fireworks that went off inside the venue.
Journalist Andrew Chant said, “We understand there were some westerners there. I’ve just come from a hospital nearby and they said they had admitted one westerner who, by his name at least, sounds British but we’re trying to confirm that. This person suffered injuries. We don’t know yet if any westerners or Britons are among the fatalities yet.”
