HUNG YEN (VNS) — A big fire broke out yesterday evening at the Hameco Ltd. Co. in the northern province of Hung Yen, destroying its whole splint production factory.
A witness said he saw smoke first and then flames going up from the factory at around 6pm yesterday.
The factory contained inflammable material, including dressings, synthetic rubber so the fire spread fast to the entire workshop.
Six fire trucks from the Hung Yen fire fighting police and two from the Ha Noi police were immediately dispatched to the area, and were able to stamp out the fire in an hour. Fire fighters also localised the outbreak of the fire.
A 2,000-square metre store next the factory managed to stay safe.
No casualties were reported in the fire. — VNS
