A fire at a residential building in northwest China's Xinjiang region has killed 10 and injured nine others.
The fire broke out in a high-rise building on Thursday evening, the state news agency Xinhua reported. The injured are not in mortal danger, it said. An investigation has been initiated.
Deadly fires are common in China due to weak safety standards and corruption among officials responsible for compliance.
A factory fire in central China killed 38 people on Monday. According to authorities, workers had disregarded safety regulations when welding.
