The 156 households that fell victim to the apartment building fire on November 15 will soon be allowed back into their homes to claim undamaged possessions and evaluate their losses. The companies held responsible for the fire will pay for valuation services, and once their losses have been calculated they may negotiate for compensation. At that point, if the families are still not satisfied, they may then then bring lawsuits. However, many say that property is not the issue. Some families who lost relatives in the fire have filed a petition for further investigations into the fire and have refused to accept compensation (960,000 RMB per victim) until the government responds accordingly.
