Towering inferno in Shanghai kills eight

Fire has engulfed a Shanghai high-rise, killing at least eight people and sending billowing plumes of black smoke over the city, state media and officials said.

The 30-storey building in the city’s Jingan district was under renovation when it caught fire about 2:00 pm (local time), Xinhua news agency said, quoting witnesses who said they had seen people jumping from windows to escape.

Construction scaffolding surrounding the building initially caught fire, spreading to the building itself.
