walk for several kilometers to enter the plant area. In the factory, the busy figure of firefighters was seen from time to time. The machines in other workshops were still roaring, and the production was not affected by the fire.

The workers' work and rest hours are "three shifts". It was the high ethylene tank that caught fire. After the fire, many factory related cadres rushed from home to the factory overnight to deal with the follow-up matters

the fire was in the east of the factory. The factory covers a large area, so there are many bicycles scattered in the factory. Bicycles are unlocked for workers to use at any time. After riding a bicycle for 15 minutes in the open factory area, we finally reached the fire site. The blazing fire was still burning, which made the night sky red. It looked very shocking. Dozens of fire engines came from all districts to put out the fire

according to an insider, the role of the science and Technology Department will be strengthened. A fire will occur due to the explosion of high ethylene. "At that time, bursts of explosions were heard from afar, just like making a movie!" Recalling the scene at that time, the witness was still terrified

Workers said that after the explosion, they did not smell any peculiar smell within 100 meters from the explosion point.

According to the preliminary understanding, the explosion and combustion pipeline on site is connected with the 20000 ton ethylene tank group and the 30000 ton propylene tank group. After the fire officers and soldiers fought hard and the scientific and international Amway shares rescued, all the tank farms were saved, and no further explosions occurred. After the accident, relevant departments timely took measures such as closing the valve and cutting off the materials. At present, the fire force is still cooling and protecting the fire pipeline to ensure the stable combustion of the remaining raw materials in the pipeline and minimize the loss on the premise of ensuring safety
