On Sunday, Wang Xiaolong could not be reached for comment, but according to his microblog, his friend had undergone surgery and had been given 50,000 yuan ($8,018) by the restaurant.

A firefighter surnamed Xu, from Fengtai firefighting department, warned of the danger of refilling the fuel when the flame is not completely out.

"You can't use water for this kind of fire. They should be put out by being covered by a lid or fire extinguisher," said Xu.

Wang Zhenping, a lawyer from Jintai Law Firm, said the restaurant does have liability.

"Even if it was the customer who did it, the restaurant should take responsibility for allowing the customers to have access to the alcohol and not alerting them to the danger," he said.

On Sunday, Dingding hot pot restaurant on Guanghua Lu, Chaoyang district, which serves hot pots using an alcohol stove, said their staff had received no specific training on how to deal with the fuel.
