The fire that broke out was a massive blaze that required a response from 287 firefighters and 80 firetrucks. By the time the fire was put out, equipment and component damage amounted to a steep $1 billion. The fire broke out at 7am local time and it took 6 hours to put it out.
We have some pictures of the firemen battling the fire in the sideshow below. Hopefully, this will not change Samsung's launch plans for its new flagship handset by even one day.
