Apart from the dead and missing people in the incident, two injured people have been admitted to the hospital. Officials said “criminal suspects” have been taken into custody in connection with the fire. Explain that industrial accidents are common in China due to weak safety standards and the corruption of the officials who enforce them. Earlier in June, an explosion at a chemical plant in Shanghai killed one person and injured another. Last year, a gas explosion in the central city of Xi’an killed 25 people and reduced several buildings to rubble.
In March 2019, an explosion occurred at a chemical factory in Yancheng, 260 kilometers (161 mi) from Shanghai, killing 78 people and destroying homes within several kilometres. Four years earlier, a massive explosion at a chemical warehouse in northern Tianjin killed 165 people, one of China’s worst industrial accidents.
