Dramatic footage of a skyscraper engulfed in flames is being circulated around Chinese social media today.
The fire broke out at around 3:20 p.m. this afternoon down one side of the 32-story Longsheng Building in downtown Nanjing. Hundreds of people were inside the building at the time, and were forced to flee for their lives. A couple of hours later, firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze, and no casualties have been reported.
With the smoke barely cleared, a full investigation has yet to take place; however, early reports on Weibo point to an air-conditioner on the sixth floor as the fire-starter.
