A furniture factory in China’s Zhejiang province became the latest victim to the heavy smog that has blanketed Beijing and several provinces and municipalities in northern and eastern China in the last few days.
When the residents finally reported the fire three hours later, it was already out of control.
It took firefighters 10 hours to put out the blaze, which had destroyed a large number of ready-made furniture, said Xinhua.
While Beijing’s municipal government said it was the worst smog in many years, provinces including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui and Hebei have also reported worsening air quality in the past few days.
