Local authorities said they are investigating the cause of the fire. The fire began in the central air conditioning fan and ventilation ducts on the roof of one of Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plants, according to a statement on the website of the Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone.
Foxconn suffered a similar incident, back in 2011, when the iPad 2 production was heavily impacted.
