Chinese state media say a fire in a workers’ dormitory has killed 12 people and injured 24 others in northwestern China.

The official Xinhua News Agency says the fire broke out early Wednesday in a dormitory for workers on a water diversion project in Shaanxi province. It did not report the cause.

It says the workers are from a tunnel engineering subsidiary of China Railway 18th Bureau Group.

A report on a news site run by the province, cnwest.com, says the dormitory was a three-story make-shift building.
