SAINT-BRIEUC, France, Aug 8 (AFP) - Four teenagers were killed in a fire that destroyed the basement of an apartment building in the western town of Saint-Brieuc on France's Brittany coast, firefighters and police said Sunday.  

Firefighters quickly brought the blaze under control late Saturday, but the four teens - who often gathered in the basement to socialize, according to neighbours - were unable to escape the flames, officials said.  

Investigators on Sunday were working to determine the cause of the fire.  

Last week, eight people including six teenagers were killed in a blaze at a riding school in the Savoie region in southeastern France.
