A raging fire consumed a 2,000-square-meter paint manufacturing workshop in the northern province of Bac Ninh on Thursday morning.

According to a preliminary inspection, the blaze first broke out at 5:30 am Thursday on the 2,000sqm premises of the paint manufacturing facility under Hansol CNP Vina Co. Ltd.

The factory is located in the Yen Phong Industrial Park of Yen Phong District, Bac Ninh Province.

A black column of smoke was seen soaring up from the site of the fire.

Police officers, firefighters, and fire engines were dispatched to the scene. The situation was brought under control at around 7:00 am the same day.
