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.
