Sad news, and really a “hands down” to a major company to have work done a major (the biggest) a holiday. Sad for all and firefighters who spent all day there. Seems renovation work was done on the building and the fire started and workers could not escape. Coming from a place where most work stops (except like airports, ect) on holidays I feel very sad about this.
I read one report that said the sub-contractor wanted to make extra money during the holiday, so he hired the foreign workers via an agency.
I bet they weren’t qualified, or following safety regulations for this kind of work.
