A firefighter stands next to a cave-in at a crossroad in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, December 26, 2012. The cause of the cave-in, measuring about 20 feet in depth, 32.8 feet in diameter, is still under investigation. Three coal gas tubes and one water tube were broken during the collapse and firefighters are trying to dilute the coal gas at the site, reported local media. Reuters
