So, it was crackers..oops!

February 11, 2009

Regarding Monday’s fire, where the newly built, not-yet populated, 40 story Mandarin Oriental went up in flames, Central China Television(CCTV) has reputedly apologised for causing it. Without authorisation they had hired people to set off firecrackers for the start of the new Lunar Year celebrations. The CCTV building co-incidentally, is next door. One fireman was killed in the blaze, with seven others injured.

Way to go CCTV!
