Bangladesh officials say a fire at a garment factory has killed at least 100 people.

Rescue workers found the bodies early Sunday.

Authorities say the blaze broke out Saturday night in the Tazreen Fashions factory outside Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

Some reports say many workers were trapped on upper floors of the building, and that some jumped to avoid the raging fire.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear.
