China dismissed media reports on the death of Chinese nationals in a Russian fire on Wednesday. 

A blaze engulfed two wooden dormitories on Wednesday morning in Zalari township, Russia’s Irkustsk region, which reportedly killed two Chinese nationals and injured six others. 

“There were no Chinese nationals killed or injured in the fire," Chinese Consulate-General in Irkutsk said in a statement on Wednesday, saying it has confirmed the situation with Russian authorities.
