A 28-year-old firefighter lost his life in a rescue in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, on March 20.

However, Quan fell into a tank filled with hot olefin when he was cleaning up the site. After being rescued from the two-meter-deep tank, he was sent to a nearby hospital and declared dead at 3:30 pm.

According to the local fire station, the fire was caused by a welder who ignited the olefin.
