Another fire at Foxconn, no casualties reported

Foxconn on fire

If there’s one manufacturing plant that can’t seem to get enough of the press, it’s got to be Foxconn. Famous for manufacturing the iPhone and the iPad, but at the same time it is infamous for its workers’ harsh working conditions, explosions and suicides. Today, Foxconn has made its way to the news again. Earlier this morning, the plant in Shandong, eastern China was reported to be on fire.

Fortunately it has been extinguished, with no casualties reported. Foxconn “believes the fire was started from abandoned pipe lines that were placed on top of the plant building.” Operations have also not been affected, so there’s no need to worry any upcoming products being delayed. But it makes you wonder how many wake up calls the folks in charge of the plant’s operations need before they take all these mishaps seriously.
