Police investigating Tuesday's deadly fire in a downtown Moscow nightclub are looking into the possibility that the blaze was started deliberately, investigators said Thursday.

One person, apparently a security guard, was killed as flames consumed over 1,000 sq. meters of the three-storey Opera nightclub, causing its roof to collapse.

Officials said the nightclub was closed for 30 days in December due to a poor fire safety record.

President Dmitry Medvedev ordered nationwide fire safety checks after a fire late last year killed over 150 people at a nightclub in the west Urals city of Perm.
