According to a tipster, something has caught fire on the Bund! Details aren’t especially clear, but it looks like the fire is coming from the dock right across from the old Bank of China building on Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu (中山东一路). The tipster has now sent in some photos, snapped with his iPhone. Seems that the stuff that caught fire is scaffolding and support beams for the Bund’s underground traffic tunnel (built to reroute ugly traffic away from the main thoroughfare).
As you can see from the second-to-last pic, the firefighters have arrived. No ambulances are there yet, which we’re hoping means nobody got hurt.
A KDS netizen posted a picture that makes it look like the fire may have started in the Huangpu River View Restaurant, but it’s hard to confirm whether or not it was just an old Bund fire and not this most recent one.
We’ll keep you updated if we find out more.
