Two Major Fires IN Houjie

Houjie Big FireA sudden fire happened in the Qiaotou community of Houjie at around 5 pm on June 5. The fire began in an open space where some PU material was waiting to burn. Even at other far-off places in the city, like Daojiao, dark, billowing smoke could be seen for days. Civilians spread information by WeChat, while Houjie firefighters came shortly to effectively control the fire. Luckily, no one was hurt.

Not long after, another fire broke out in a different plastic factory on June 23. The total area of the structure was around 700 sq m, but only about 150 sq m were burnt. The fire happened at around 6:55 am and was finally put out at 8:28. Again, fortunately, no one was hurt.

Though the fires will cost owners money, human life is always more important. Hot summers in Dongguan enable fires, so always be careful with that still-burning cigarette.
