Heater blamed for fire in ancient Chinese town

Published: 01.18.14, 09:34 / Israel News

Chinese state media say a heater left unattended caused a fire that destroyed an ancient Tibetan town in southern China's Yunnan province.


The official Xinhua News Agency said late Friday that authorities detained Tang Ying, operator of the Ruyi Inn guesthouse in the old neighborhood of Dukezong in Shangri-La county. Xinhua said Tang was under investigation for allegedly causing the January 11 fire that burned for nearly 10 hours, destroying 343 houses and many historic artifacts.
