Taiwan building fire kills 46, prompting scrutiny of building safety


The 40-year-old building in the popular tourist district of Yancheng had been partly abandoned, with residents only living on the building’s upper levels. Described as a “city within a city,” it was once one of the busiest in the district, housing a cinema, market and serving as a red-light district, according to local media reports. Because of its checkered past, it was known among locals as Kaohsiung’s first haunted house.
