Night fire destroys ancient Tibetan town in China

Published: 01.11.14, 09:29 / Israel News

An inferno that raged for 10 hours early Saturday razed an ancient Tibetan town in China's southwest Yunnan province that's popular with tourists. There was no immediate report of casualties, and the cause of the fire was unclear.

 

The blaze broke out at 1:27 a.m. in the ancient Tibetan town of Dukezong, which dates back more than 1,000 years and is known for its preserved ancient streets, structures and Tibetan culture. It is part of the scenic Shangri-La county in Deqen prefecture. (AP)
