Patna - A fire has killed 10 guests after they attended a wedding in a village in eastern India.
Police officer Sanjay Kumar says a thatched roof apparently caught fire where guests were sleeping after the wedding ceremonies ended.
Strong wind fanned the flames, and five women, two men and three children couldn't be rescued, Kumar said.
Authorities are investigating the fire that occurred on Friday in Harinagar Tola, a village in Bihar state about 165km south of Patna, the state capital.
The bride and groom were not hurt.
Fires are quite common during Indian weddings as people explode firecrackers or fire guns in the air during celebrations that ignore safety standards.
