Hair dryer fire causes traf­fic jam

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA -

A fire in­volv­ing a hair dryer caused a traf­fic jam at a busy es­tate in Nan­jing’s Qixia dis­trict on Tues­day morn­ing. Sev­eral fire trucks were dis­patched to deal with the blaze. No deaths or in­juries were re­ported, but the apart­ment in­volved was se­ri­ously dam­aged. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion sug­gested that the fire oc­curred af­ter a tenant left her hair dryer plugged in when she went to work dur­ing a power out­age. The power re­turned shortly af­ter her de­par­ture, caus­ing the de­vice to over­heat.
