Thousand years old wooden bridge collapsed in China

Wan'an, the longest wooden arch bridge in China, collapsed. A 900 years old bridge has collapsed as a result of a fire in China's eastern province of Fujian.

As reports RIA Novosti, the fire occurred on Saturday evening, and at 22.45 local time, the fire was extinguished. No one was hurt during the incident. It is noted that the probable cause of the fire of the bridge is the human factor.

The Wan'an Bridge was first built over 900 years ago during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). With a length of 98,2 meters, it was considered the longest arch bridge in China.
