Authorities announced on Saturday that the death toll has risen to 85, with more than 700 others still being treated in hospitals, including 25 who are in critical condition and 33 who are in serious condition.
Residents living close to the site of giant explosions in the Chinese port of Tianjin have been evacuated over fears of toxic contamination as new fires ignited.
Armed police were carrying out evacuations within 3km of the blast site on Saturday after highly poisonous sodium cyanide was found, the Beijing News said.
The blaze ignited again at the warehouse where the blasts struck on Wednesday night, with several small blasts heard by reporters from the Xinhua state news agency.
"Out of consideration for toxic substances spreading, the masses nearby have been asked to evacuate," Xinhua reported.
A survivor was pulled from a shipping container on Saturday morning, state media reported. His identity was not immediately known. 
Television video showed the man being carried out on a sketcher by a group of soldiers wearing gas masks.
