A fire at a karaoke bar in Qingyuan City in southern China has killed 18 people and injured another five, according to the official Xinhua news agency.
 
Police say arson is the most likely cause of the fire at the three-storey building and have captured a man suspected to have started the blaze.
 
He reportedly got into an argument at the venue and blocked the entrance with a motorbike.
 
The 32-year-old was arrested shortly after authorities offered a reward for information.
 
The public security bureau of Qingyuan City said police first received a call about the incident after midnight local time on Tuesday.
 
It said police, fire, health and other departments all responded and that the blaze was put out at 12:55 am.
 
The injured were taken to hospital for treatment.
