This Is Sad

An entire town has been destroyed and hundreds of homes burned to the ground after a fire ravaged a popular tourist area in southwest China this morning.

Fire engines were unable to put out the blaze in Shangri-La in Yunnan province, leaving residents no choice but to take to the narrow streets with buckets of water.

The fire was started accidentally in a guesthouse but quickly spread through the Tibetan area, destroying the tourist town of Dukezong in its entirety, according to local media reports.
