A fire that broke out on Friday morning in a Dong ethnic village in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region engulfed 21 houses and left 130 people homeless.

Rescuers said the fire broke out at 20 minutes after the midnight and was contained in two hours in Xiazhai village of Gunbei Dong Ethnic township, Rongshui County. No casualty has been reported.

The ancient village features timber houses, in which big families usually live together. The county is located in the outlying mountainous region in the northwest part of Guangxi.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Victims have been temporarily arranged in neighboring places.
