China: Fire at Harbin Resort hotel kills dozens
Text size Aa Aa

At least eighteen people have died in a fire at a holiday hotel in northeast China.

The blaze broke out early Saturday morning at a hot spring resort in Harbin. Dozens are injured. Over a hundred firefighters tackled the flames in the four- storey building

An investigation has started into the cause.

The governments started a 40-day 'special operation' focusing on building safety. It's after a fire broke out in an apartment block killing 19 people last November.
