This was followed by a statement from a fire spokesman, Tomasz Kubiak, who confirmed the deaths of the five teens and told AFP: "One man with severe burns was taken to an intensive care unit". It's believe the girls were celebrating a birthday party at the time.

Players in escape room games are locked inside a room or building and must solve puzzles and find clues that lead them to the key that will unlock the door. A Polish news agency said it learned unofficially that the victims died from carbon monoxide asphyxiation.

Lights, flowers and toys are left outside the escape room entertainment site where five teenage girls died in a fire.

A fire engine stands outside an "Escape Room" game location in Koszalin, northern Poland, on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019. Prosecutors said a leaky gas container inside a heater most likely caused the fire. Regarded as an intellectual challenge, the games have become increasingly popular among Polish teenagers in the past five years.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but officials are carrying out safety checks on every escape room in Poland.

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.

Firefighters put out a blaze in an adjacent room and then used specialist equipment to break into the locked room.

Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki vowed earlier on Sunday to close escape rooms that fail to meet safety standards after firefighters inspected almost 200 such facilities across Poland over the weekend.

It has been announced that Sunday will be a day of mourning in the city.

Poland's President Andrzej Duda sent his condolences to the victims' families on Twitter.
