Two people were killed and four remain missing after a fire engulfed a gold mine in east China’s Shandong Province on Wednesday, local authorities have said.

The fire broke out as workers were repairing facilities at the Caojiawa Gold Mine, located in the city of Zhaoyuan, according to sources with the municipal government of Yantai, which administers Zhaoyuan.

Two were confirmed dead, and eight others were trapped down the shaft. Four were later lifted to safety, while four remain unaccounted for.
