$60K in total damages? Even if one assumes the resultant fire damaged no buildings or other property, that's a rather insignificant "server farm". It may be better described as "one apartment with a pile of second-hand computers"; hardly an event worth reporting half a globe away, unless the editors are hurting badly for content.

60k - A fender bender between two new cars can reach that pretty easily.

How come commenting is not loading on many articles ? Like the latest on about the Intel ARC announcement.

It was an apartment with a rack of ASIC miners in it. There are photos posted on the source site which the author would have seen if they'd clicked through.
