85,000 Chinese museum artefacts lost in New York fire in Lunar New Year disaster (SCMP)

‘One hundred per cent of the museum’s collection’ was lost in the blaze, the Museum of Chinese in America says. The museum’s collection included items such as textiles, restaurant menus and ship tickets that tell the story of Chinese migration to the US. The fire came ahead of the Lunar New Year on Saturday.
