HÀ NỘI — Fire and police officials on Wednesday began examining the factory in La Phù Commune to determine the cause of the huge fire that razed it on Tuesday night.
The blaze destroyed the 600sq.m factory in Hoài Đức District, which belongs to the European Industry Joint Stock Company, officials in the Hà Nội fire-fighting police department said. The fire also spread to another 600sq.m workshop next door and damaged its roof, the police said. There were no casualties.
The fire broke out around 8.29pm, but the police were informed only a little later. At least 13 fire engines, six water tankers and more than 100 firefighters, with other personnel, were mobilised to put out the fire. The fire was extinguished completely by 3am, the police said.
Officials suspect the fire broke out because of the presence of flammable materials in the factory.
Preliminary investigations have estimated property damage at tens of billions of đồng. — VNS
