The family of one of the two girls who died in a hotel fire in Beijing on Saturday is considering taking legal action against the hotel. 'We are seeking legal advice on possible action against the hotel,' said Mr Lau, the uncle of Lau Hoi-yee, 17, who died in the blaze with Choi Tsz-yan, 12, at the Catic Plaza Hotel, where 47 Hong Kong students and parents were staying at the time of the tragedy. Mr Lau's remarks followed the announcement by Beijing police on Wednesday that two Hong Kong boys playing with matches unintentionally started the blaze in their room. The two girls were in an adjacent room, which filled with smoke as they dozed. The boys, surnamed Tang and Li, were in the same study tour group as the girls. Mr Lau has said he believes the police report 'has been faked' to clear the hotel of responsibility. Some tour members have accused the hotel of not having safety measures in place, saying fire alarms did not go off and electricity was not cut off after the fire broke out. Kelly So Kam-hung, a spokesman for the Hong Kong government office in Beijing, said it had not been notified by police of any arrest in connection with the blaze. The two boys, aged 12 and 14, were still in Beijing yesterday, helping police investigations. The group is due back in Hong Kong on July 27. The families of the two girls yesterday attended a funeral ritual performed by Buddhist monks in Beijing. Mr So said his office was helping the families send the girls' bodies back to Hong Kong but some technical procedures had still to be completed.
