More than a hundred firefighters and other personnel scrambled to the Leogrand Hotel & Casino in the center of Batumi after fire broke out at around 8pm, local time.

Officials on Saturday (Nov 25) revised down the death toll after initially putting it at 12 people.

Georgian Interior Ministry announced that the victims were 10 Georgian nationals and an Iranian man.

Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili, who was returning to Georgia from Brussels, landed in Batumi and visited the scene.

Ajarian Health Minister Zaal Mikeladze had told journalists earlier that five citizens of Turkey and one citizen of Israel were among those injured.

Adjara TV reports that more than 20 people were injured and they have already been transferred to the hispitals.

The Leogrand, a 22-story hotel that opened in 2015, had been fined for failing to comply with fire safety regulations, the deputy mayor of Batumi, Tengiz Petridze, told Rustavi 2, a news channel.

In a later post he offered his condolences the families and promised an investigation to find the fire's causes.
