Fire breaks out in Central Chinese city of Changsha; no causalities reported yet
A massive fire has engulfed a skyscraper in the Chinese city of Changsha. The fire has been put out now but no casualties have been reported yet.
Has anyone figured out a secondary evacuation methods/sy ems for getting out of high rise building. Maybe hand gliders or or bunji rope that's attached to points of the building or even a slide/tube that works its way around the building.

4 years ago a towering inferno of similar fashion occurred in London. It was the Grenfell Tower. Investigations revealed the outer cladding of the Tower was made of flammable material. The Changsha Building towering inferno displayed very similar characteristics.
Very tragic news. Hope people are safe.
I've never seen a building that tall burning from top to bottom.
I sincerely doubt that there really were no casualties in this inferno. I also wonder why a building over 700 feet tall had only 42 floors.
Just like everything that is offi ally reported in China - ‘no casualties’ seems very unlikely. It can take weeks for rescue crews to search all those unstable floors to look for bodies.
How do you extinguish a fire like that? I’d assume it would be more of a controlled burn.. that’s crazy

. It's better to be remembered as burned than demolished due to its substandard and shaking issues
No casualities? Remember they reported that only four of their soldiers died in Galwan like a year later
“Extinguished”? Looks like the building probably just burned out.
If I ever live in a tall building, I'll definitely buy a parachute.
Very flammable materials were used in the construction of this skyscraper.
Wasn't that the building during lock down that they were screaming out their windows for food and water?
Ain't no way there is no casualties

I'm surprised the building didn't col pse.
Imagine if that building had resi nts in it locked down due to covid. They would have all roasted.
So over half the building was on FIRE and it did not fall at freefall speed!!!!!????? How could this be? Buildings in New York, fell like a houses of cards!!
Chinese real estate companies have the track record of following the worst safety standards in the world.
Thank god people are safe
Unbelieveable that there is no one in the whole building. Unless it is a Ghost bldg
Just when I thought its between some time since we last heard about fire accident news from China
Whole building on fire yet not collapsing, but world trade center in 2001 col psed even only few floors on fire
Hope everyone is safe.. Common people should not suffer from such tragic accident. God bless them

Any news from China, I am just curious and skeptical. This again raises doubts whether the building was burned intentionally.
I just watched the old movie "The Towering Inferno " and now this happens. Can you say creepy !
The Chinese can't even demolish a building properly. For insurance purpose or whatever do it it like the 9/11. Smoky then boom 7 buildings fell just like that.
Made in China quality is a hot topic these days
so sad, is this building built using wood? it’s burning like wooden set … so sad
The big fire failed to burn down the building, that means the good quality buildings.
It reminds me of the world trade center.
Cher to burn it
How this happen?
