Chinese Chicken Farm Fire Kills At Least 93

A blaze rips through a poultry farm and processing plant in China, killing at least 93 workers and injuring dozens more.

The blaze in Mishazi in Jilin province is believed to have been sparked by three explosions in the farm's electrical system, according to China's Xinhua News Agency.

Workers told state broadcaster CCTV the fire broke out during a change of shifts and may have started in a locker room when around 350 staff were on site.
