After 14 hours, nearly 250 firefighters finally stopped the spread of fire and fully extinguished the scene. The fire covered a total of 30,000 square meter areas. 

According to the reports, the fire has started from its additional wooden roof and the cause of the fire has not investigated yet. Due to the fact that the factory roof was made of wood, glass wood, and tar paper, the fire spread so rapidly and 80 percent of the roof was caught on fire. Luckily, the fire has not spread to other parts, especially inside the factory and nobody was injured. 

The fire occurred at the time when repair work of the roof was being done. Now Khan-Uul district`s Police Department is investigating the cause of the fire and the result will come up within 14 days.
