"An appalling tragedy in Koszalin. Five joyful girls starting out in life have had life torn away from them. May God protect their parents and next of kin," President Andrzej Duda wrote on Twitter on Friday, commenting the tragedy.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki posted on Twitter on Saturday a condolence message for the families of teenage girls who died in the Friday blaze.
"My deepest sympathy goes out to the families of all the victims of the great tragedy in Koszalin, where five young girls lost their lives. The causes of the tragedy must be fully explained. At the moment our thoughts are with their loved ones," Morawiecki wrote in the message.
In an escape room game participants are locked in a room and must solve a series of puzzles against the clock in order to get out.
In response to the tragedy, Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński announced fire safety checks in escape rooms countrywide. Brudziński declared that the families of the victims will receive full assistance aid from his ministry. (PAP)
