The commander of the Maipú Fire Department, Andrés Alegría Toledo, said in the same media that the incident began at 4:50 p.m. and at that moment there were workers inside the factory, so it was the company’s brigade that first worked.
He also indicated that there are no injured people and that it was a complete job, since “around 200 firefighters, 25 cars from the Metropolitan region together with the Maipú fire department” participated.
