Emergency services work outside a nightclub in Bucharest, Romania.

On Sunday, the initial toll of 27 climbed to 29. A Romanian doctor warned that number may rise again significantly because so many injured people have such severe burns, the Associated Press reported.

On Friday, the explosion occurred at the Romanian capital where a rock concert was taking place, Deputy Interior Minister Raed Gabriel Oprea. About 400 people were expected to attend the show at Colectiv.

According to reports, the fire is believed to have been caused by fireworks that were let off inside the club.

At least 180 people were reportedly injured in the blast and subsequent stampede.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis posted a message on Facebook shortly after the incident was reported, expressing condolences for the families of the victims.

"It is a very sad day for all of us, for our nation and for myself," Iohannis wrote. "I would like you all to stand by the distraught families and to show solidarity and sympathy."
