According to various sources, one of MSI’s largest manufacturing plants had been forced to enact emergency measures after a large fire started on the site, forcing fire crews into the factory. 

According to Guru3D, this site is MSI’s Baoan factory in Shenzhen China, a site which mostly manufactures PCBs for various MSI products. These products may include laptops, graphics cards, motherboards and server products. 

Thanks to a translated statement on the matter, MSI has claimed that no employees were hurt during the incident and that the factory’s production line was not damaged. MSI has reported that the factory is already back to work and is “operating normally”. Additional training for workers should prevent similar problems from ever occurring again at the plant. 

At this time, it is unknown what caused the fire or what burned during the blaze. Below is MSI’s statement regarding the fire, which has bee translated from Chinese to English.
