ODESA, Ukraine -- Rescuers in Ukraine have found three more dead bodies amid the rubble of a burned-out technical college in the Black Sea port city of Odesa, bringing the number of deaths to 16.
The State Emergency Service said on December 12 that the bodies were extracted from the debris overnight.
The regional police said there are no more missing people after the fire.
The fire broke out on December 4 at 10:12 a.m. local time on the third floor of the six-story Odesa College of Economics, Law, and Hotel and Restaurant Business, eventually engulfing an area of 4,000 square meters.
The building was completed in 1914 and has landmark status.
A fire inspection of the building conducted in June 2014 found gross violations with orders to correct them, prosecutors said.
Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk has said that each family that lost someone in the fire will receive the equivalent of $8,500.
