Fire closes iPhone factory in Chennai, India
A fire has closed an iPhone assembly facility in Chennai, India, with production lines being forced to close as repair work commences.
As reported by AppleInsider, on Sunday, Pegatron suspended production lines following a “fire incident.” At the time, the stoppage was described as temporary, but the shutdown has now reached a third day.
According to the manufacturer, the fire has been described as a “spark incident” that didn’t cause injuries.
According to Reuters, disruption could last beyond Wednesday as Apple representatives work with Pegatron following the incident.
Pegatron has asked independent surveyors to assess the fire damage, a source said.
Apple and Pegatron have not respond to requests for comment.
