How this fire started, the reason is not yet known. Eyewitnesses say they heard an explosion around 3 am. Then the flames started appearing. According to an official statement from the local administration, the building was 40 years old, with shops on the ground floor and apartments on the top.

Let us tell you that in Taiwan, the official confirmation of death figures in such accidents is done in the hospital itself. The head of the fire department told the media that 11 people had died on the spot. The bodies of the dead have been sent to the morgue. According to the statement of the fire department, the fire was extremely severe and several floors of the building were gutted in the fire. The fire has been brought under control. The entire building has turned black due to the flames. Seeing this, it is difficult to guess whether anyone ever lived here or not.
