According to the report, the accident is due to enterprise personnel’s illegal operation. The factory is operated by a wholesaler of industrial equipment, clothing and chemical products.”

Footage shows the two-story building engulfed in flames and, according to the local government in part of Anyang city, 38 people were killed and two people were injured.

The blaze at the Kaixinda company warehouse, which sold ‘a wide range of industrial goods’ including ‘specialised chemicals’, took 3 1/2 hours to bring under control, according to the Wenfang district government.
