Shanghai Apartment Fire [The Big Picture]
One week ago, on November 15th, in Shanghai, China, a fire erupted, apparently within construction materials and scaffolding surrounding an occupied 30-story apartment building under renovation. The flames quickly spread to the building itself and soon engulfed the entire structure.
The American Red Cross responds to an average of 200 home fires every night. We encourage you to be safe, especially over the Thanksgiving holiday when so many of you will be cooking more than you usually do.
