Default South Korea: 22 Dead : Several Lithium Batteries Exploded in a Factory

[A massive factory fire that began
after several lithium batteries exploded
has killed at least 22 people in South Korea.

The blaze broke out on Monday
morning at the Aricell plant in Hwaseong
city, about 45km (28 miles)
south of the capital Seoul.
Local television footage showed large
smoke clouds and small explosions going
off as firefighters sought to put out the fire.
A part of the roof had collapsed.

South Korea is a leading producer of
lithium batteries, which are used in
many items from electric vehicles to laptops.

Fire official Kim Jin-young said 18 Chinese,
one Laotian and two South Korean workers
had been confirmed as among the dead.
A final body had yet to be identified,
and there are fears at least one
more person may be missing.]

Big set back, in Laptop batteries
