    News Anchor: "Yesterday 5,000 beautiful paper lanterns were released into the night sky as part of the Pingshi Lantern Festival. It turned out to be a huge turn out of people, the most ever attending the local festival.

    Our next story involves nearly 5,000 homes burnt to the ground in Pingshi today. The cause of the fires remains unknown at this time."
