Police fired tear gas canisters towards firemen and journalists

After the firemen had extinguished the fire between Hung Hom station and the footbridge of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, they sprayed water towards the items on the scene to lower the temperature. The police suddenly fired 3 tear gas canisters towards the firefighters, who had to walk away hastily and put on respirators, N95 masks or surgical masks immediately. A fireman appeared to be in pain.
