(WSYR-TV/CNN) -- Chinese officials said a fight over money prompted a nursing home resident to set the building on fire.

According to CNN reports, 45-year-old Wang Gui lost his temper after accusing another resident of stealing about $32 from him.

Authorities said early Friday morning, Gui set fire to the Lianhe Senior Nursing Home, killing 11 people, including himself.

More than 30 people were in the facility when the fire started.

The nursing home cares for elderly residents who have no source of income.
