At least 29 people were killed when a fire broke out during daytime renovation work at a nightclub in central Istanbul, the city governor's office said on Tuesday. One additional person was in critical condition at a hospital.

Firefighters and other first responders surrounded the charred and smoking entrance to the club, which occupies two floors underneath a 16-storey residential building in the city's Gayrettepe district.

"There is no application (to local municipality) for a renovation or a construction regarding the place and as it was two floors down the ground level, it (the repair work) wasn't visible," Istanbul Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu said.

Three prosecutors are investigating the blaze and five people were ordered to be detained, according to Justice Minister Yılmaz Tunç.
