Fire Terror in Taipei
“Our initial understanding is this explosion and fire . . . was caused by the powder spray. It could have been due to the heat of the lights on the stage.” (Al Jazeera)
New Taipei City health chief Lee Lih-jong comments on a dreadful disaster at the Color Play Asia event at the Formosa Fun Coast water park which happened when a jet of powder paint caught fire and turned into a giant flame-thrower, instantly torching over 500 clubbers (188 of whom were seriously hurt).
