10 killed in apartment fire in northwest China's X injiang
BEIG: A fire in an apartment building in northwestern China's injiang region has killed 10 people and injured nine, authorities said Friday.
The fire broke out Thursday night in the regional capital of Urumqi, where temperatures have dropped to below freezing after dark. The blaze took around three hours to extinguish.
The injured were all expected to survive and the cause of the fire is under investigation, the local government said.
My heart is arching. My eyes are full of tears.
It’s the truth
I noticed that the fire hose/water didn't reach the building.
It would also help if the fire fighters could spray the building but looks like the came up a little short..
I was born in Urumqi. Unfortunately my mom is stuck in Urumqi right now. She travelled back from Beiing to injiang to take care of my aging grandma in the summer, and she has been stuck there ever since.
So very sad and tragic….
I dont know whats really going on in other parts of China. But in Zhejiang Province, everything is still OK now, no censorship, no violence.
Ouch…. this is horrible. Prayers out to the Chinese, stay strong ya’ll
oh the horror
Sad... died living with almost nothing
I'm American, I'm past 65 and I've had Covid 3 times in the last 18 months. No big deal. I get much sicker with the flu. Nobody where I live even thinks about Covid any longer. A few people wear masks in public but I went shop today and in busy stores I saw maybe a half dozen people total wearing a mask. I fully expect to come down with Covid again sometime this winter (shrug....). I'll spend a few days home on the couch and then be over it.
If you’re expecting it to come , it surely will.
No one In Vegas has a mask, everyone is packed in, yet everyone is fine.
There's a fire but let's test everyone for covid first
And the water isn't even touching the fire
in the fire, the last words they shouted was not help, but open the door!
