A fire at a warehouse in northeastern China has killed at least 14 people. Besides, 12 more people were seriously injured. This information has been confirmed in the state media. The warehouse is located in Changchun, the capital of the northeastern province of Jilin.

The fire broke out Saturday evening, local time, state news agency Xinhua reported. The rescue operation is still going on. In the published picture of the incident, it is seen that the rescue workers are carrying out the rescue work with ladders and cranes. The building is surrounded by glass.

The cause of the accident is still unclear. The cause of the accident is being investigated, Xinhua reported. Such accidents often happen in China. Unauthorized buildings are constructed in such a way that it becomes very difficult to get out of the building in case of an accident.

Earlier in June, a fire at a boarding school in China's Henan province killed 18 people. Most of them are children. State media later reported that the mandatory fire safety inspection at the school building had not been completed.

The fire at the school sparked a brawl on social media. Chinese social media users have sought assurances of improved safety standards in the field of fire safety.

In 2017, two dozen people were killed in two fires in an immigrant-populated area of ​​Beijing. In 2010, 58 people were killed in a devastating fire at a 28-storey building in the Shanghai residential block.
