Emergency services rushed to the chemical and electrical goods facility just after 4.22pm local time, according to reports.

A whopping 240 firefighters tackled the roaring flames with their 63 vehicles, eventually extinguishing the fire by 11pm.

After the blaze was put out after several gruelling hours, teams began searching among the rubble for survivors.

At least 38 people died and two others were injured, the local government in part of Anyang city said in a statement on Tuesday.

Another two people are still missing following the devastating fire.
