A fire broke out on the second floor of Building 18, Hangzhou Bay Building Materials Market in Zhejiang at about 10 a.m. on June 9.
A video posted by netizens shows that the entire building materials market was billowing with smoke, reaching hundreds-of-meters high, obscuring the sky and the sun.
Many people can be heard screaming.
Thick smoke continued to pour out of the windows on the second floor.
Some people huddled on the air conditioner outside the window to take shelter, and some had nowhere to escape, so jumped off the building.
