Workers apparently heard an explosion and barely had time to get out.

No one was reported injured.

Units from seven firehouses were called into the fire that was under control by 6:05 am, however, work continues in extinguishing the fire completely due to the large amount of flammable materials in the factory.

It is a warehouse that stores plastic and polystyrene material, the affected area some 6,000 square meters (65,000 square feet).
