Tragic News

At least 10 killed in Dongguan cafe fire

At least 10 people have been killed in a fire that broke out at Ming Tien cafe in Zhangmutou, Dongguan , Guangdong province
One person was seriously injured while six others were slightly hurt, Xinhua said last night. The fire broke out shortly after 5pm and firemen arrived at the scene five minutes later.

The blaze was put out in 10 minutes and it was estimated that it had spread over 400 square metres. Police were investigating the cause of the blaze last night.


my comment: I have been in this coffee/restaurant several times. I actually makes many of my morning runs in the stretch of road in front of it because it well lightened also night time. This morning the road was still blocked by Police. Unfortunately the safety is often neglected in China and many people pay a tragic congruences. The TV reported it was an explosion from a bottle of gas.
