QUANG BINH (VNS) — A blaze that started in a wood drier at noon yesterday destroyed 20 cubic metres of wood in a workshop in the central Quang Binh Province.
The workshop, which belongs to the Quang Binh Book and Stationary Joint Stock Company and is based in the Dong Hoi town's northeast industrial park, stores a lot of wood for processing and production of schooling items.
The ruined pine and rubber wood cost the company VND200 million (US$9,400). No fatalities were reported, despite the local fire fighter unit dispatching four vehicles and 50 firemen to extinguish the fire within two hours.
This is the second blaze in one month in the province. A blaze had earlier been reported on January 2, which destroyed 23 shops in a market and resulted in a loss of VND20 billion (US$0.9 million) in goods and infrastructure. — VNS
