Fire breaks out at central China factory, kills 36

At least 36 people were killed after a fire broke out at a workshop in Anyang city in central China’s Henan province, Chinese authorities confirmed on Tuesday. The incident even left two injured and two others missing.

The fire broke out on Monday at 4 pm (local time) and the firefighters could douse the thick flame at 11 pm. More than 200 rescue workers and 60 firefighters were deployed to bring the situation under control.

The two people who sustained injuries were sent to hospital and are now said to be in a stable condition.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but some suspects have been taken into police custody. China has a history of industrial accidents owing to poor storage conditions, locked exits and lack of adequate firefighting equipment.
