Help for Chinatown fire victims

Chinatown Fire Benefit

Businesses affected by the devastating Chinatown fire will be helped by a community fundraising event on Tuesday. All money raised at the 2018 Chinatown Fire Benefit will be used to assist business owners and staff who have been left out of pocket after a blaze ripped through a Chinatown building on the corner of Grote and Moonta streets in the city about 1am last Tuesday. The fire, believed to have been sparked by an electrical fault in a fridge, caused $1.5 million damage and destroyed Asian supermarket Oriental Mart and Bing restaurant. It also damaged other shops, including Dumpling King, Sys Souvenirs, Holiday Travel and Grote St Dental. Some of the businesses are expected to remain shut for up to nine months as owners rebuild. The benefit, organised by not-for-profit organisation Chinatown Adelaide South Australia, will be a cocktail event, including drinks and food, in the Chinatown Plaza Food Court,

Arson not suspected in Adelaide Chinatown fire

Chinatown Adelaide Blaze

Adelaide police now say they don’t believe a fire that affected up to a dozen Chinatown businesses was deliberately lit, after earlier describing it as “suspicious”. The Metropolitan Fire Service said firefighters arrived in Grote Street shortly after 1:00 am to find “an intense fire” in a shop that was burning through the roof and rapidly spreading to neighbouring shops. More than 70 firefighters then worked to put the fire out and they contained it within an hour. The MFS said the fire’s “rapid spread” meant that three shops were “significantly impacted”, with two a supermarket and a restaurant being gutted and a third that sold shoes and clothing being heavily fire-damaged. “There was a pretty bright orange glow coming from the top [of the building complex],” the MFS’s David Juniper said. “Very heavily smoke-logged internally. So it was very hard to determine where the origin of the

If elected in March 2018, a Marshall Liberal Government will support the major redevelopment of Chinatown by providing $500,000 for a permanent cover for Moonta Street. The Opportunity Adelaide’s Chinatown has been an important feature of the city since the 1970s, following an influx of Asian migrants and the growth of Asian food shops and cafes in the area. It is now centred on Moonta Street, which features pagoda style roofs, red lanterns, restaurants and grocery stores. This Chinatown plaza is being redeveloped and the adjacent Adelaide Central Market is positioned for a major upgrade after it returns to the control of the Adelaide City Council in 2018. The plans for Chinatown and the complimentary upgrade of the Central Market offer a great opportunity to cement South Australia’s tourism, trade and cultural ties with China. South Australia’s Chinese community is 50,000 people strong and is a very important part of
