Tower fire update

There's better news today about the fire in the inaptly named Fortune Tower.

They now say that two workers died as a result of the fire, not four as earlier reported. And less were injured than the earlier reports, the figure is now thirty-seven.

Still too much death and injury, but better than the original figures.

It's also been announced by the Fortune Investment Group that they will pay compensation to the families of the dead men and to injured workers. That's over and above any legal insurance claims and any compensation that may be paid by the contractors.
