Fire Rages at Google Offices in Beijing

Google has come under heavy fire as of late - this time by way of a burning inferno at the Beijing, China offices in the Zhongguancun tech district – known as China’s Silicon Valley of the East.

For the major globalized corporation of Google, it's another sign of the dangers of doing business in China, where fire codes are next to nonexistent, and the thought of “insurance” is a pipe dream.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.

Google’s CEO was slammed by members of the US House Judiciary Committee, in a series of testimonials believed to have been less than forthcoming.

Lawmakers asked Sergey Brin about a wide variety of subjects, including his company’s planned involvement into China's oppressive censorship.

Smoke could be seen billowing into the skies surrounding the facility on social media, with some of the employees reporting to have been told to evacuate the premises.
