On the afternoon of the 14th, a fire broke out in the three-story factory building of Taizhou Dadong Shoes Co., Ltd. in Yangjiawei Village, Chengbei Street, Wenling City, which caused 16 deaths and 5 injuries. 17 people were taken to the hospital, 5 of them were injured (1 fractured, 4Respiratory tractBurns), and another 12 people stayed in the hospital for observation.
Most of the causes of death are suffocation
As for the cause of the fire, Wenling said that it is still under investigation. Some employees speculated that the fire was related to the aging of the wires.
Yu Changfeng, head of the Wenling Fire Brigade who participated in the rescue, said that the reason why so many people could not escape was probably because the fire spread rapidly, and the burning of shoe materials produced a lot of smoke and high temperature, and many people suffocated in a short time. "The toxic smoke from a fire can suffocate with one puff, and three puffs are fatal."
Wenling City No. XNUMXpeople医院副院长黄希田说，员工没有掌握火灾逃生技巧也是死伤惨重的重要原因。“可以肯定16人中多数是窒息而死，也就是被熏死的。都是三楼、二楼往下跑时出了意外，正确的做法是应该往上跑，等待救援。”黄希田说，就算从3楼跳下，逃生率都有70%以上，可惜大家都不知道。
There is only one staircase in the building without escape route
Yesterday afternoon, a cordon was set up outside the shoe factory. The burning plant was a three-story single-family building with 3 rooms on each floor. Rolling gates were installed on the ground floor. There were 7 windows on the 2nd and 3rd floors with anti-theft windows, and nothing else.
Yang, a 28-year-old man from Guizhou, worked in Taizhou Dadong shoe factory for 6 years. He said that there were more than 100 people in the factory. When the fire broke out yesterday afternoon, more than 50 people were working in the factory.
Yang said that more than 100 workers mainly use the stairs in the house every day, and the corridors are very crowded when commuting, and it takes 2 minutes to walk from the first floor to the third floor during peak hours. "After the fire broke out yesterday, many people were stuck in the corridors on the 1nd and 3rd floors and did not come out."
Leng Caixiu, a female worker on the third floor when the fire broke out, said that the workshop was full of materials such as leather and finished shoes, and there were also debris in the aisle, making it difficult to walk around.
After the fire broke out, more than 30 workers on the third floor squeezed out and ran out. Leng Caixiu tripped over something when he went downstairs. "There are a lot of things piled up in the workshop, and the smoke is invisible. I can only give up running away and squat in place. Waiting for someone to save."
Yang said that there was no fire bell in the factory, and all leaned outside to shout after the fire broke out. But the window was closed on the third floor, and I couldn't hear it. In the end, someone rushed upstairs to inform. "If the people upstairs knew that a fire had started, they wouldn't be so flustered."
