The incident happened around 11 pm and police suspect a short circuit may have started the fire.

The fire broke out at the back of the building, setting fire to cardboard boxes used to pack goods and spreading to the front of the warehouse, local media reported. Security officers on duty initially tried to control the fire using chemical fire extinguishers. But the fire was so intense that they could not put it out.

The guards alerted the police and the local administration sent 20 fire engines to the scene. It took firefighters about an hour to fully extinguish the blaze. By now, the fire had swept through paper boxes and goods stacked in the warehouse.

Samsung reportedly stores many appliances and other goods at the site. According to local reports, the fire destroyed a large number of goods. However, Samsung electronics has not yet estimated the damage.

This is not the first time Samsung has suffered fire damage at one of its facilities. In February 2017, a fire broke out at Samsung SDI’s Tianjin plant, which occurred in a waste storage area and did not cause significant economic damage to the South Korean conglomerate.

In February 2020, a fire broke out at automated wastewater treatment and deodorant facility at Samsung’s chip manufacturing plant in Hwaseong, South Korea.

Samsung also suffered from power outages at its factories. In January 2020, a one-minute power outage at the same chip plant in Hwaseong disrupted production. The company suffered millions of dollars in losses.

In February 2021, a statewide power outage in Texas forced Samsung to halt semiconductor production at its Austin plant for more than a month. The company reported more than $270 million in losses from the problem.
