Fire at Coal Firm Office in China Kills at Least 26


At least 26 people were killed and dozens more hospitalized when a fire broke out in a coal company’s office building in a provincial city southwest of Beijing on Thursday, China’s state-run news media reported.

The fire began around 7 a.m. in the offices of Yongju Coal Company in Lüliang, a city in the northern province of Shanxi, the official Xinhua News Agency reported. Few other details were immediately available.

Last November, a fire in a two-story factory in the central province of Henan killed at least 38 people. A few days later, a fire in an apartment building in the far western region of Xinjiang killed at least 10 others.

This is a developing story.
