Fire engulfs apartment high-rise downtown

FIREFIGHTERS are trying to rescue residents trapped in an apartment building that caught fire in the city's Jing'an District.

The fire broke out in a building near the intersection of Yuyao Road and Jiaozhou Road around 2pm today.

One of the three residential buildings is engulfed with black smoke rising high into the sky.

The apartment building has about 20 shops on the ground level and many residents were spotted inside the high-rise.

A man was seen hanging out the window, desperately waiting for his rescue, a Shanghai Daily journalist reported at the site.

A helicopter has been dispatched to the site to assist the rescue operation.
