The mother’s brother tried to enter the premises however was pushed back by firefighters.

The babysitter survived the fire. She had been working for the family for a year. Last month she asked her employer if she could borrow 100,000 yuan as she wanted to buy a house.

It’s been reported that the babysitter set fire to the apartment on purpose.

Her husband said she was in good relations with the babysitter and she had once even borrowed money from her employer.

After being questioned by police, she admitted to having stolen watches and children’s bracelets from the house, reports iFeng.

One watch was said to be worth 200,000 (£22,000) -300,000 yuan (£34,000). It is claimed that the woman stole the watch and some children’s bracelets and took them to a pawn shop.

Police say the babysitter is currently a suspect and has been detained.

    All I know is that no matter how rich I am, I won’t be keeping such valuables in a flat that is frequented by outsiders
