Chinese kung fu movie star Jackie Chan has donated money to the families of firefighters killed in a recent warehouse blaze.

Chan gave over $80,000 after the tragedy in northeast China last Friday.

According to an official with the civil affairs department of Heilongjiang, the money was given to five families.

He added that the local government will also compensate them for their losses.

The five deceased firemen were buried in debris while trying to put out the fire in a warehouse at a ceramics market in Harbin, Heilongjiang's capital, last Friday.

After the tragedy, many people expressed their wish to donate to the families of these young men. The provincial civil affairs department has opened a donation account.

A memorial for the five men will be held later today.
