Fatal fires are quite common in China, due to inadequate fire safety regulations and the corruption of officials who are actually responsible for their implementation.

Earlier this week, 38 people died and two others were injured in a factory fire in Anyang, Henan province (central). Authorities attributed the tragedy to improper handling by a worker during electric welding.
