How common are bin fires like this at construction sites? The flames in this one were about 5 meters high at one point...
this is not a good week for Shangri-La; first plywood flying off the top and hitting cars below, now a fire
the weekend can't come soon enough for those guys...
I've seen a few small fires start at construction sites. A couple times were due to welding slag dropping onto combustable material (i.e., ABS pipe). The other happened after some soldering, where some insulation caught on fire.
