Shijiazhuang, 4 September: Two workers were killed in a fire on a retired
Russian aircraft carrier in Qinhuangdao city, north China's Hebei Province,
Wednesday [3 September] morning. The fire took place around 10.45 a.m.
[local time] towards the bow of the carrier, which was anchored at a
dockyard while receiving maintenance work before an exhibition on 16
September at a tourism resort in Tianjin, a major port in north China.

One of the workers died in the fire and other in hospital, said Yan Aidong,
a dockyard official. The fire was put out at 5 p.m. and an investigation is
under way into the cause. The blaze caused no serious damage to the carrier,
