ANKARA, Turkey - An official says a fire exit at a dormitory for girls that caught fire in southern Turkey, killing 12 people, was most probably locked.

The fire blazed through the three-story dormitory housing middle school students in the town of Aladag, in Adana province, last night, leaving 11 students and a teacher dead. The fire, believed to be caused by an electrical fault, also injured 2.

The state-run Anadolu Agency quoted Adana's mayor as saying that either the fire door was locked or that the panicked students were unable to open it.
