Some 50 firefighters have responded to the deadly fire at a sauna club in the heart of Germany's capital. Authorities have yet to discover the cause of the fire.
Fire rescue officials on Sunday said three men died in a fire that broke out at a sauna club in the German capital of Berlin.
Emergency services received the first call about the fire at 22:30 (2130 UTC).
It is unclear how the fire erupted at the Steam Works club, located in the basement of a 10-storey building in the central Berlin district of Schöneberg, authorities said. Other parts of the building were not affected by the blaze, they added.
Firefighters had to cut through a steel gate in order to access the club, the Berlin-based "BZ" newspaper reported.
A spokesman for emergency response services said some 50 firefighters combed through the small rooms of the 2,000-square-meter club.
Nearly 30 people were at the club at the time the fire broke out.
