There are scattered reports of a fire at the Foxconn plant in Shenzhen. It sounds like the company attempted to keep news of the incident silent, but supposedly some reporters who happened to be outside the facility spotted the firetrucks.

Based on vague reports and rumors, about a dozen workers may have been injured and treated on-site rather than being taken to a hospital. The fire was supposedly extinguished within half an hour.
