A fire in a bar in the northern French town of Rouen killed 13 people and injured another six, the interior ministry said in a statement on Saturday. The ministry said the cause of the fire, which broke out in a bar sometime overnight, was being investigated.

Local media reported the fire was accidentally started by candles lit for a birthday cake during a private party. Rouen this week held the funeral of an elderly priest who was knifed at a church altar in a nearby town in an Islamist attack.
