Six people suffocated to death after a fire broke out at a fireworks store, engulfing a four-storey building in Yueyang city, Hunan Province late on Tuesday night. Preliminary investigations show that the accident was caused by an impatient customer who set off a firework that he had bought just ten meters away from the store. The fire was extinguished by midnight, with one survivor rescued.
