A fire tore through an indoor shooting range in southern South Korea, killing 10 people, including at least two Japanese tourists.

Some people were on fire as they ran out of the building, Yonhap news agency quoted a witness as saying.

An official at the National Emergency Management Agency said authorities were having trouble identifying the dead because of their burns.

Nine Japanese tourists and their South Korean guide were inside the facility in the southeastern port city of Busan when the fire broke out on the second floor of the five-story building.
