According to Whenzou News, the fire is linked to black oil released by a factory upstream. Firefighters had to use a special foam on the water surface to extinguish the inferno. Flames reached over 16 feet high, and were threatening nearby buildings. The cause of the fire is unknown, but locals speculated that it could have been started by a cigarette being tossed into the river where the oil was floating.

It seems that about 1 ton of softener oil being dumped into the river by a company. Of course he claimed that it was not flammable. The company has been closed until further notice.
