Fire engulfs Taiwan high-rise building, killing 14 and injuring dozens

The Independent says at least 14 people were killed and 51 injured after a major fire engulfed a 13-storey building in southern Taiwan in the small hours of Thursday.

The “extremely fierce” fire erupted around 3am and spread across many floors of the building, fire department officials from Kaohsiung city said.

Locals said they heard a loud explosion in the middle of the night and woke up to see the building on fire.
