Warehouse fire rages 6 hours, no casualty reported

A six-hour fire starting last night in Pudong District did not cause much damage to local environment. Air quality returned to the normal level soon after the fire was put out, officials said today.

A nearby river was not polluted either because firefighters shut down a drainage pipe leading to the stream.

The fire occurred at 7:23pm yesterday in the warehouse of a logistics company in Pudong's Gaoqiao area, one of city's key export processing zone. The warehouse contained parafin wax, an inflammable material.

The fire was extinguished at 1:28am this morning. Two firefighters were slightly injured.
More than 40 families living nearby were evacuated soon after the accident.

The cause of the fires is still under investigation.
