Fireworks blaze destroys 5-star hotel in China
BEIJING — A fire set off by fireworks to celebrate the Lunar New Year destroyed a five-star hotel in northeast China, state media reported Thursday.
The official Xinhua New Agency said the fire gutted the hotel in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning province, before dawn Thursday. No injuries were reported.
Xinhua said firefighters had trouble dealing with the fire because their fire engines shot water up only 165 feet, while the building was 720-feet tall.
