OTTAWA, Jan 24 (Reuters) - The death toll from Thursday's fire at a Quebec seniors' home has risen to eight from the previously reported five, with about 30 people unaccounted for, Canadian media reported on Friday.

The wooden residence for the elderly went up in flames early Thursday morning. Attention has focused on the fact that it was only partially equipped with sprinklers. (Reporting by Randall Palmer; Editing by Chris Reese)
