At 1 AM today (April 5), a fire broke out at RK Resources Co., Ltd. in Bau Bang Industrial Zone of Binh Duong province’s Bau Bang district. The workers and security staff of the company could not put the fire out before it spread. The Binh Duong Firefighting Department sent over 15 fire engines and a hundred firefighters to the scene.

However, the factory contained a lot of wood, which is easily flammable. The flames escalated amidst loud explosions, making it very difficult to contain the situation.
