Deadly fires occur frequently in China, where lax enforcement of building codes and widespread unauthorized construction can make it difficult to escape burning buildings.

Earlier this month, a massive fire in the central city of Changsha engulfed part of a skyscraper housing an office of state-owned telecommunications company China Telecom, but no casualties were reported.

In July last year, a fire at a warehouse in northeast Jilin province killed 15 people and injured 25 others, according to state media.

The previous month, a fire had killed 18 people – mostly children – at a martial arts school in central Henan province, sparking an outcry over fire safety standards.

Two dozen more people died in two fires in Beijing’s migrant neighborhoods in 2017, while 58 perished when a huge fire swept through a 28-story building in Shanghai in 2010.
