Hong Kong restaurant fire sends plumes of smoke across harbor

Hong Kong (Reuters) - Huge plumes of black smoke billowed across eastern Hong Kong harbor on Friday after a fire broke out at a restaurant in a traditional fishing village frequented by tourists, the government said.

Smoke clouds of smoke could be seen above the village of Lei Yue Mun, where authorities said fire services had been deployed to deal with the blaze.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

Ten staff were evacuated from the scene and no casualties had yet been reported, the government said.
