200 party-goers burnt when spray paint ignites in Tawian

(Taipei) Party-goers at a waterpark music festival in Taiwan became engulfed in flames when the coloured powered paint sprayed all over them ignited and seriously burnt over 200 people. The incident happened at the Formosa Water Park near the island's capital, which thankfully was very quickly brought under control. More than 200 people were taken to a hospital after the blaze, with 80 in a serious condition. It is believed that 1,000 people were inside the amusement park when the powder was sprayed on the crowd as part of a colour party - a festival of dance and music where people cover themselves in bright paint.
