A fire that raged for six hours on Saturday night and Sunday morning destroyed the Shengzhuang Department Store (Skrong) in Shenzhen’s Baoan District, Southern Metropolis Daily reports.

Five workers were trapped inside but all were rescued and there were no casualties. The fire is thought to have been caused by a short circuit, but an investigation is ongoing.

Here are some images, courtesy of Southern Metropolis Daily:
