omg, pure stupidity and totally unnecessary. Why would u want to light that stuff illegally? There were tons of beautifal fireworks around.

Its their own fault and they'll have to pay for it.
An apology isnt going to do it for the family of the firefighter. I hope they sue CCTV for their childish behaviour.

This, of course, only ur article is true.

The firework is A type firework
It is banned by government
But how could they get them from market?
And why aren't they prevented from firing them?
What a loss!
The construction of the CBD core is just ready to ground breaking
but this will postpone the whole process

Wow...I thougth it started with just a little accident by some worker's carelessness. If it's true, then I guess it becomes a unprecedented event in modern architectural history.

1. A fascinating architecture is almost completed
2. Illigal fireworks
3. It gets completely burnt before it even opens

hmm...

police? here we use to call the fire department if we see a fire.

anyway, i would not blame those filmers for not calling since there was a million others watching it from the beginning!

umm, its the same number i think.

So then if fireworks were used illegally up there and CCTV ordered people to do that, then CCTV is responsible and is in quite a bit of trouble.

 【北京=坂尻顕吾】北京市中心部にある国営中国中央テレビ(CCTV)の新社屋敷地内で内装工事中だった高層ビルの火災で、市消防局は10日、CCTV側がビル付近で数百発の花火を違法に打ち上げ、火災につながったことを明らかにした。新華社通信が伝えた。
 火災による被害者は消防隊員7人と建築作業員1人の計8人で、うち死者は消防隊員の男性(29)だった。
 報道によると、CCTVは湖南省の花火業者を雇い、敷地内の空き地で火力の強い式典用の花火を打ち上げていたが、使用に必要な市当局の許可を得ていなかった。当日夜、巡回中の警察官が忠告したが、CCTV側は無視して花火を続けたという。
 打ち上げの様子はCCTVが設置した4台のカメラに録画されており、市消防局がテープを確認。警察当局は打ち上げにかかわった関係者を拘束したほか、花火の燃え殻などを押収した。
 CCTVは10日午後、同社のウェブサイトで「国家財産に重大な損害を与えたことは誠に残念であり、周辺の交通渋滞や生活の不便をもたらし、心からおわびします」と謝罪のコメントを発表した。



Found this on Asahi. Is it true that the fireworks they were launching were illegal?

There was an article on the previous page that made it sound like CCTV was intentionally trying to burn down the other tower. Of course, the news is often bias and implies untrue things to get readers.
are you japanese? surprised to see japan write"国" same as chinese, simplified character.
they will rebuild it, the insurance company will compensate.
