SK Hynix announced that damage at its fire-hit factory in Wuxi, China is minimal and that production will resume soon.
The memory maker says the fire was less severe than photos in the media had suggested but explained they're still investigating the extend of the damage. One person got injured in the fire.
On Wednesday afternoon, a fire broke out at the South Korean company's factory in Wuxi as a result of "equipment installation," SK Hynix said in an email. The fire was extinguished 90 minutes later, and left no damage to the factory's fabrication equipment, it said.
"Thus we expect to resume operations in a short time period so that overall production and supply volume would not be materially affected," the company said.
