City to pay 960,000 yuan for each killed in fire

Family of the 58 victims killed in a high-rise fire last Monday in Jing'an District will receive 960,000 yuan (US$144,546) each in compensation and subsidy, a local official said this afternoon.

And the 71 injured and other residents who suffered damages will also be compensated based on injuries and losses. "We will fully pay for their damages according to market prices," said Zhang Renliang, Jing'an District director.

Zhang said residents can choose certain products on a list or can ask a third party to evaluate their properties and offer collected evidence for later compensation.

Apart from the gutted building, two adjacent buildings whose residents are sheltered in nearby hotels are getting exterior cleaning and repair, but their residents can not move back until experts have finished an assessment, said Zhang.
