tianjin - A fire in a tower block in the Chinese city of Tianjin has killed at least ten people. Another five were injured. The fire brigade needed more than three hours to extinguish the fire on the 38th floor of the building.
The fire was caused by the fact that decorative material caught fire, wrote the Xinhua state news agency. Several people were taken by the police for questioning.
In China, fires and industrial accidents often occur due to negligence or violating safety regulations. Two weeks ago, nineteen people died from a fire in a suburb of Beijing. The fire started in the basement of the building, where a cold store was built. None of the eleven workers working on it had, according to the police, the required qualifications.
