On Monday evening in Changsha, Hunan province, a snacks and drinks factory belonging to Want Want Foods (“Wang Wang” in Chinese [旺旺食品], best known for its rice crackers) turned into a giant fireball that belched great big balls of black smoke into the air.
So what happened?
When reporters went to find out, they were beaten by security guards. It was well into the evening before the fire was controlled. Maybe the guards should have been, you know, more worried about that than reporters without water hoses. Tudou video for those in China after the jump.
