An artificial wood processing company in the Mekong Delta's Long An Province was cdestroyed in a fire Saturday.
While no one has thus far been reported dead or injured, the fire destroyed almost all the materials and finished products on the premises of the factory run by Tan My Le Co., Ltd.
One of the workers said his colleague had accidentally started the fire with a hot air welding torch. It took firefighters more than five hours to put out the blaze.
The factory, located on 2,000 square meters of land, started operations nearly two months ago to produce artificial wood products for export.
Police said they were estimating the damage and investigating the cause of the fire.
