A fire at a poultry processing plant in northeast China killed at least 55 people today.

 

The blaze at the Baoyuan poultry plant in Dehui in Jilin province was caused by an electric spark.

 

Firefighters were still working to extinguish the blaze almost five hours after it broke out around 6:00 am.

 

Workplace safety standards can be poor in China, where fatal accidents happen regularly at mines and factories, with some blaming lax enforcement of rules.
