Engine Oil Packaging Factory on Fire in Yangmei 家樂福倉儲處理殘火 幼獅工業區又竄火

Just one day after a large fire at a Carrefour logistics center in Taoyuan, another fire broke out at an engine oil packaging factory in the same district. Fortunately there were no casualties. 


Fire was burning profusely at the factory located in Yangmei District of Taoyuan, sending thick, black smoke into the air. The factory made out of iron sheets is completely out of shape. The fire broke out at past 4 a.m. on the 15th. Two cars parked outside next to the factory were also destroyed in the fire.

Resident Nearby: “I smelled the scorch early in the morning. I suspected the cars were burning. Yeah, I could smell that something's burning.”

The engine oil packaging factory seems to have been operating illegally since it doesn't have exterior signage. Engine oil containers were scattered around on the floor inside the factory, which caused the fire to burn more violently and out of control. About 100 square meters of the area were burned. Fortunately, there were no injuries.

Chen Chun-tse, Yushih Squadron Chief, Taoyuan Fire Department: “The fire got reported at 4:17 a.m. We immediately sent 26 fire trucks carrying 76 fighters to the scene. We were able to control the fire by 6:44 a.m. and extinguished it by 7:16 a.m.”

Two fire incidents happened in Yangmei during the last two days consecutively. A fire had just broken out at Carrefour's logistics center on the 14th and now another fire at an engine oil factory in the area.

Liu Kuo-jung, Deputy Chief, Second Brigade, Taoyuan Fire Department: “There is plenty of leftover ashes and debris on the racks so our firefighters will keep checking to make sure that there are no more collapses.”

Cheng Wen-tsan, Taoyuan City Mayor: “The burning seemed to have started from the pallet section located towards the back of the warehouse. We are in the process of cleaning the warehouse and investigating if the fire was caused by staff or other reasons.”

Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-tsan demanded a thorough security check-up for logistics and storage facilities in the city. In addition, Cheng said that Carrefour should reconstruct their warehouses with higher standards and consider building more divisions with fire-rated walls to segregate goods and services. Cheng is also calling for Carrefour to strengthen their staff training in case of fire emergencies.

 

 

現場濃煙狂竄,火勢猛烈,鐵皮屋被燒到變形。15日清晨4點多桃園市楊梅區高上路一段鐵皮屋工廠發生大火,鐵皮工廠及外面停放的2輛汽車,都被燒毀。

附近民眾說:「凌晨就開始聞到燒焦味了,所以懷疑可能是不是那個車子燒起來。對,有焦味,有焦味。」

據了解,工廠是沒有招牌的機油分裝廠,疑似違章建築。廠房內堆放未處理的機油,讓大火一發不可收拾,濃煙直衝天空,燃燒面積約100平方公尺,無人受傷受困。

桃市消防局幼獅分隊長陳駿澤表示:「清晨的4:17發生火警,那我們消防同仁立刻派遣26車、76人次到現場支援火警,並在6:44控制火勢,7:16撲滅。」

連續兩天楊梅幼獅發生2起工廠大火,14日才傳出的家樂福物流倉儲火警,也還在殘火處理中。

桃市消防局第二大隊副隊長劉闊融指出:「因為它貨架之間還有蠻多昨天的餘燼,所以我們同仁布線深入。我們也會特別留意會不會坍塌。」

桃園市長鄭文燦回應:「這次起火的區域,大概是倉庫後方的棧板區。至於起火的原因,到底是人為的因素,或者其他的因素,目前正在進行火場的清理跟調查。」

桃園市長鄭文燦表示,大型物流業都要通過工安和消防檢查,也特別請家樂福用更高標準來設計重建倉儲,考慮分倉分流、做更多防火區隔。另外防災設計、演練及災防和人員整備都需加強。
