China's Ministry of Public Security on Tuesday sent five teams nationwide to check how local fire-fighting departments were conducting fire-safety inspections, public education and building code oversight to proactively prevent fires in their districts.

The fact-finding mission will focus on the departments' work in identifying and removing hidden dangers that cause building fires, especially in public venues, high-rise buildings and underground structures.

The inspectors would also check how the departments worked to carry out fire-preventing inspections and education among the public.

The move followed a series of anti-fire actions, initiated by the Ministry of Public Security last month, after some deadly fires occurred in the country.

The fires included the one at China Central Television's (CCTV)new headquarters in downtown Beijing on Feb. 9, in which a firefighter was killed, and another at a Latin-style bar in Changle City of the southeastern Fujian Province on Jan. 31, which killed 15 people and injured 24.

The ministry said the campaign would last until mid September.
