Workers die in Turkish tent blaze

A fire engulfed a tent used as a dormitory for workers at a building site in Istanbul on Sunday night, killing 14 people.

The workers were staying in a giant tent at the construction site of a supermarket. The district mayor noted it was snowing, and said the fire may have originated from an electrical heater. AP
