Previous deadly fires in China have drawn public anger. In April, 29 people were killed as a fire ripped through a hospital in Beijing, leading to criticism of local authorities on social media sites.

China’s coal producers are also under scrutiny for a series of accidents in mines in recent months, which has weighed on production as mines stop work for safety inspections. — Reuters
