The blaze seized the whole factory building consisting of over 300 square meters. 20 workers present inside the building at the moment, were luckily able to escape the dramatic accident and give the alarm, after having tried, in vain, to extinguish the huge fire.
The fire has been extinguished only later in the evening and has asked for an incredible deployment of forces, all the while, the tankers came in from Vasto, Ortona and Chieti.
Over 20 millions in damage. This is the first appraisal made by the management for the fire flared up in the Pilkington department where automotive windshields are made.
