Staff detained after fatal fire

PEOPLE in charge of the recycling center in Qingpu District where a fire ripped on Sunday, killing six people and injuring eight, were detained by police yesterday.

Investigations showed the recycling center did not have a license to store flammable chemical substances. The fire was triggered by an explosion of chemical containers made of plastics and metal during the waste treatment process. Four of the injured were in critical condition last night.
