PX chemical fire reignites at Zhangzhou plant

One of three containers that caught fire at a chemical plant in China’s eastern city of Zhangzhou burst into flames again on Tuesday evening.

The fire broke out a day earlier due to a PX chemical leakage.

Residents in the surrounding neighbourhoods were evacuated to safety after the fire broke out.

Six people were hospitalised for minor injuries with thirteen others receiving medical attention.
