"We use iron tongs to take the container out and refill it by following how the experienced waiters do it," said a waitress surnamed Jiang at Dingding.

But at Xiaoshancheng hot pot restaurant on Chaoyang Lu, a manager said they used electric hot pot stoves instead of alcohol-fueled ones due to safety concerns.

On October 30, eight fire trucks attended a fire caused by an alcohol-fueled hot pot eruption at a restaurant in Dongcheng district after fire extinguishers failed to work, reported the Beijing Youth Daily.

Deyunzhai was closed Saturday, and on Sunday calls went unanswered.
