The very large and intense fire at China's 40 story CCTV & Hotel Building. It seems to have been passed over on USA news, as the regular news gave it just a 5 second mention.
I'm not sure what this building was made of, yet the tower took off like a torch (maybe they build with flash-paper in China). Lets hope this raises China's fire codes to more of a modern day standard. If you know more about the fire, please leave a comment, or post links.
The TVCC building, adjacent to the iconic CCTV building, included Mandarin Hotel Group’s flagship property in China and was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
Chinese investigators are now blaming illegal fireworks, set off by state broadcaster CCTV’s staff as part of celebrations to mark the end of the Chinese Lunar New Year, for the blaze.
