The Beijing News previously reported that at about 6:00 on May 5, 2019, a fire broke out in a self built house of a villager near Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University, causing 5 deaths and 38 injuries. Beijing News reporter learned from students and surrounding businesses of Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University that the fire was in a building built by villagers outside the north gate of the school. The three to six floors of the involved building are apartments. Many students rent them. At ordinary times, the residents in the apartment park their electric vehicles in the first floor stairwell for charging. Fire sources said the accident was caused by a fire in an electric car in the stairwell on the first floor of the building.

This morning, a survey report from Guilin Emergency Management Bureau showed that at about 6:39 on May 5, 2019, a fire broke out in a house in Xilong village, Yanshan Town, Yanshan District, Guilin City, causing 5 deaths, 6 serious injuries and 32 minor injuries.

The building is a six story building in the northwest corner of Xilong village, Yanshan Town, Yanshan District, Guilin city. It is located in the north of Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University. It is a self built house of Liu, a villager. The land property is the land reserved for the development of Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University. In 2009, Liu started building without going through any formalities.

On May 26, 2014, Liu sold the house to Zhao Yuan for 3.7 million yuan. In September 2017, Zhao Yuan rented the house to Chen shuibin, who began to decorate the house that month. After obtaining the right to use the house, Chen shuibin began to operate the rental house from January 1, 2018. In December 2018, Chen shuibin hired Wu Bingliang as the management personnel of the rental house to manage matters such as rental, leaseback and equipment maintenance. Before the incident, Chen shuibin was the actual lessee and operator of the leased house involved, and Wu Bingliang was the actual manager employed by Chen shuibin.

According to the Fire Department of Yanshan District, the fire was caused by the electrical failure of an electric bicycle (license plate No.: guic7t341) on the west wall of the North Hall on the first floor of the building. The holder of the electric bicycle involved: Meng Yao (the resident of room 412 in the rental room), who had been in use for 7 months.

At about 6:39 on May 5, the surveillance camera screen above the northwest corner of the hall showed that there was smoke from a row of electric bikes parked near the west wall, and the fire appeared about 2:20 seconds later.

(function() {(window. Slotbydup = window. Slotbydup| []). Push ({ID: u5811557, container: ssp_, async: true});)) (); the investigation team believes that the direct cause of the accident is the fire caused by the electrical failure of the electric bicycle. The indirect reasons include that the owners fire safety responsibility is not implemented, Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University is not able to grasp and manage the situation of students who deliberately evade the schools management and live in their own rented houses outside the school, and the government and functional departments are not able to supervise the fire safety of group rented houses and electric bicycle parking and charging within their jurisdiction. Finally, through investigation, it is found that the 5.5 fire accident of Xilong villagers house in Yanshan Town, Yanshan district is a large non production and operation fire liability accident. The investigation team suggested that three persons, including the operator, the daily manager and the owner of the house, should be investigated for criminal responsibility. In addition, the investigation team also suggested that Deng Zhiping, deputy secretary of the Party committee of the University, and other people should be given administrative demerit recording and administrative warning, and that Lijiang College of Guangxi Normal University should be ordered to make in-depth written inspection to the Education Department of the autonomous region.
