Added On August 27, 2015

The death toll from the blasts has risen to 135, including 81 firefighters and seven policemen.

The blasts have also wreaked havoc on residential buildings near the blast site.

State-owned property developers say they will purchase the blast-hit apartments.

Two residential compounds were seriously damaged by the recent warehouse blasts in Tianjin, along with thousands of cars at a parking lot near the site.

For two weeks, debris and chemicals around the warehouse were being cleaned.

Over 200 companies have resumed operation after a suspension caused by the blast.

Workers have partially restored power supply for some damaged buildings.

Five state-owned property developers in Tianjin have formed an alliance, pledging to purchase blast-hit apartments from residents.
