CCTV on Fire... Sort of

Breaking news -- a building which is part of the new CCTV building in east third ring road is currently on fire.

A friend of mine called me just after 9pm tonight reporting huge flames shooting out of the odd-shaped building next to the loop nicknamed "da kou char" or "big pants".

Apparently flames six to nine metres tall could be seen on the building and fire crews are trying to put the fire out.

News reports say the cause of the fire is unknown.

Here are some pictures from someone's blog...

CCTV staff were supposed to move into the building in time for the Olympics, but that was written off. The latest date was supposed to be this coming December, but now that may be delayed again...
