Fire breaks out in basement of Taipei 101 building



Taipei, Dec. 22 (CNA) A fire broke out on basement level 1 of the Taipei 101 building at 7:43 p.m. Saturday, Taipei fire officials said.

The fire occurred in the food court of the skyscraper and 69 firefighters were dispatched to the scene, where they found thick smoke, the officials added.

Firefighters and police evacuated people inside the building and quickly extinguished the fire.

An initial investigation indicates the fire could have been caused by an over heating fume extractor, according to officials.

No injuries were reported and authorities continue to investigate the cause of the fire.

Taipei 101 evacuates visitors due to food court fire

Nobody was injured, but Taipei 101 closed for the night

Thousands of shoppers had to leave the Taipei 101 shopping mall Saturday evening after smoke erupted from its underground food court.

Heavy smoke could be seen from all around the area, one of the Taiwanese capital’s main shopping district, but the fire had reportedly erupted inside a ventilation channel at the food plaza, media reports said.

Even though nobody was reported injured and damage was rumored to be light, the mall decided to close early for the night, the Apple Daily reported.

Fire fighters had arrived en masse on the scene and were still investigating the cause of the smoke production.

The evacuation of the public had taken 20 minutes, Taipei 101 management said.

The incident comes at a difficult time since the landmark tower is preparing for its annual New Year’s Eve fireworks, an event which attracts hundreds of thousands of onlookers.
