@At 23:45 yesterday, China Fire Control reported that 235 firefighters from 47 fire engines in Shenyang fire control arrived at the scene for rescue, and the fire has been basically put out. Firefighters have searched and checked layer by layer, and there are no casualties. The fire building has 25 floors in total, and the fire location is the external wall of 5th floor and above.
It can be seen from the scene that the fire spread rapidly from the low floor to the high floor, and the buildings exterior wall and thermal insulation materials fell.
Staff: the fire passage is blocked and the fire situation is not controlled at the initial stage
According to our video report of Beijing News, the staff of Hunnan District Emergency Management Bureau said: it was only a window on the fifth floor that had an external wall insulation fire. Because the nearest fire passage to the building was blocked by parked vehicles, the fire could not be controlled in the initial stage, and the fire rushed to the roof in six minutes.
@Chinas fire ministry stressed that the fire truck passage is the life passage! No occupation, blocking or closing!
Netizens are angry:
Experienced person: I feel very lucky when I run down from the 23rd floor
According to the client of China Youth Daily, a 23 story resident, Kan Dong (a pseudonym requested by the interviewee), is looking up to his house. He is wearing a very thin down jacket with his bare arms inside, and the temperature is nearly - 17 u2103.
He Dong, 34, came home from work at 8:30. Half an hour later, when he was preparing to take a bath, he found that there was smoke in the room and it was choking.
The smoke rolled in from the crack of the door and the air outlet. As soon as the bath water was put out, my hair was wet. I covered my mouth with the towel and ran out quickly with my daughter-in-law. I grabbed a thin down jacket and didnt care to put it on. The corridor is full of smoke, and I can hardly see people. I ran to the elevator first, and found that the light of the elevator was off, so I went straight to the walking ladder.
The pungent burning smell, smoke and fire made him have a headache. Four people came down the same floor. They ran together and shouted for help. They ran to more than ten floors. The smoke was a little small. Some people didnt even mention their shoes. When we ran to the fifth floor, we met firefighters. They went upstairs to fight the fire and let them go down quickly.
Outside the building, Mr. Kan found that the gag towels were black, and the fire trucks came.
I didnt have time to take anything at home. I took a bag with a gold bracelet in it. Ive found a place to take a bath. I think Im very lucky. Ill be lucky if I dont die. Its good if I can run down from the 23rd floor. My daughter-in-law is asleep. Its no use worrying. Its already like this. Ill buy some clothes in advance for the first time in the morning. Mr. Kan said with a smile.
The men in the Northeast are so optimistic and cheerful that they are not depressed even when their families are burned. The residents of other buildings in the community thumbed up for his humor and wit.
