Around dawn yesterday in Wenling, Zhejiang province, a factory belonging to Wanjia Shoe Company erupted into flames, according to Sohu (more pictures after the jump). The building served as storage for raw shoe-making materials such as glue, half-finished products, and apparently a whole lot of flammables, because the place exploded five separate times. More than five hours after the fire began, it was extinguished at 11 am. The early estimate is that 1,400 square feet of building was charred, though there were no injuries.
I bet you had no idea shoe factories could be so exciting.
