At Least 17 Dead After Fire Breaks Out in New Delhi Hotel

At least 17 people are dead after a fire broke out in a New Delhi hotel early Tuesday local time.

There were  reportedly more than 50 people  staying at the Hotel Arpit Palace when the fire started.

Dozens of them were rescued by fire crews.  Authorities are looking into the hotel's circuitry as part of their investigation into the cause of the blaze.  Buildings in India aren't usually well-maintained  or built to code .

In this case, a government official  told reporters  that the six-story hotel had been built with two more floors than its permit allowed for.

The building was also lacking proper fire escapes  and emergency exits .  The Delhi Police have reportedly registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder in connection with the fire.

The government announced it plans to compensate the victims' families.

Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
