A fire believed to have been started by burning incense caused serious damage to a public housing flat in Ho Man Tin yesterday. The blaze broke out in the 15th-floor flat of Chiu Man House in Oi Man Estate, Chung Hau Street, after its 63-year-old tenant burned incense on his balcony. A security guard hurt her hand after she lost her footing as she led residents to safety.
