QUANG TRI (VNS) — A large blaze broke out early this morning at a wooden warehouse in Nam Dong Ha Industrial Zone in the central Quang Tri Province.

The warehouse contained sawdust and woodchips of the ENE Power One Member Limited Company.

The fire was first discovered at 4am by a guard of the warehouse corner, under which electric cables were installed.

The sawdust and woodchips helped the fire to spread quickly in the warehouse.

The firefighters took six hours to extinguish the fire.

Hoang Minh Hien, the company director, said the warehouse contained 1,000 tonnes of sawdust and woodchips.

Initial estimates said the fire caused VND1 billion (US$48,000) worth of damage, Hien said.

The police are investigating the cause of the blaze. — VNS
