FoxConn, a computer-part manufacturer who is famous for making iPhones, iPods, and iPads but not very well known for also working for Dell and other tech companies, owns quite a few plants over in China. One of them caught fire this morning due to faulty electrical wires in the ceiling. Thankfully for everyone, even us, insurance will pay for the damage and it won't hamper production, which means prices won't go up. There isn't much else to report on this, but no one was hurt or killed in the fire. You can see a video of the fire here, see an original report here, and read a Reuters report here.
