A fire at a foot massage parlour in eastern China on Sunday killed 18 people and injured two others, state media reported.

Workers jumped out of windows to escape the blaze, which broke out at the Zuxintang parlour at around 4 p.m., and firefighters rushed to the scene, according to state broadcaster China Central Television. No cause of the fire was given.

The parlour is located in Tiantai county in Zhejiang province, CCTV said.

China has laws on workplace safety, but enforcement is often lax.
