Hearth engulfs historical picket bridge in southern China

BEIJING (AP) — Government are investigating the reason for a fireplace that engulfed a 900-year-old coated picket bridge in southeast China over the weekend.

Within the video and pictures of the Saturday evening fireplace in Pingnan County, Fujian Province, all of the Wan’an Bridge used to be engulfed in flames. It’s reported that no person used to be injured within the fireplace.

At 98 meters (323 toes), the bridge is the longest bridge of its sort in China. It’s been rebuilt again and again over the centuries, maximum lately in 1932. The picket construction, status on 5 stone pillars, crosses the river and has a coated walkway within the outside.

The unique bridge used to be constructed all through the Track Dynasty.
