    (迪庆11日讯)中国位于云南省迪庆藏族自治州香格里拉县的独克宗古城星期六凌晨发生滔天大火,狂烧9个多 小时后,约在上午11时救熄,但超过100栋古建筑被烧毁,幸未造成人员伤亡。
    凌晨1时30分左右,香格里拉古城四方街发生火灾,武警8750部队出动1000多名消防及军警,第一时间 投入人员疏散、物质抢运等现场救援,部队先后转移疏散群众2000余人。
    香格里拉县委宣传部随后通报,火情已得到控制,初步测算火灾造成经济损失逾1亿元人民币(逾5400万令吉 )。
    茶马古道重镇
    据初步统计火灾烧毁房屋100多栋,由于该古城为茶马古道千年重镇,房屋建筑多为木式结构老屋,火灾发生后 ,虽然多方力量第一时间参与救援,但是由于天干物燥,火情迅速向四周蔓延。
    起火原因正在调查中,目前暂无人员伤亡报告。

    That is the Malaysian Chinese online news. They report the estimated damage in Ringgit Malaysia.

    Here is the Straits Times breaking news version in English.
