BEIJING, China - A second deadly fire broke out in one of Beijing’s migrant neighbourhoods on Wednesday, leaving five people dead and eight others injured.
The fire broke out weeks after local authorities were forced to lead mass evictions in response to another deadly blaze.
The official Xinhua news agency said that Beijing’s Communist Party chief Cai Qi visited both the injured in hospital and the fire scene.
The report added that police had detained the building’s owner.
The visit by Beijing’s Communist Party chief is said to have underscored government concern about the unfolding public relations disaster that has followed the city’s brutal response to last month’s dormitory fire.
In late November, City officials began tearing down unsafe buildings after a fire that killed 19.
After the fire, residents were driven out into the winter cold with little notice in the name of fire safety.
The move, however, provoked public outrage.
On Wednesday, the fire department said that the blaze started in a southern neighbourhood of Beijing at around 1:18 am when two electric bicycles caught fire.
Residents in Henan province are now afraid that the government will force them to leave soon without giving them enough time to deal with their products and personal stuff.
