It appears that on November 5, a fire took place at one of MSI's factories in China, as reported on Reddit and Twitter. This factory is located in Bao'an, though fortunately, the situation appears to be under control according to MSI.

MSI issued the following statement to Guru3D:

A fire accident occurred in MSI's Baoan factory in Shenzhen on the afternoon of November 5th. The company initiated emergency response measures and notified the fire department to deal with it quickly. No injuries were caused and the production line was not affected. In the future, the factory will strengthen the promotion and training of personnel. At present, all units are operating normally. Thank you for your concern.

According to this statement, the incident does not appear to have any major consequences. There are no reported injuries or deaths, nor has the production line been affected. We have not been able to verify this information.

The facility in question is said to be a location where MSI manufactures PCBs for various devices.

This event comes only months after the sad passing of MSI's CEO, Charles Chiang who fell from one of the company's buildings.

At this time, these are the only details available to us. We will keep this story updated as we learn more.

    How do you have a fire that is big enough to be news worthy, at a factory that works 24 hours a day, and not have the production affected? I am guessing the cultural re-orientation camps (I mean summer education schools), have deep pools of anonymous work talent that are not counted in the injuries statistics, because they do not exist. Simples.

    While their X570 launch lineup wasn't up to par, their boards released this year, like the X570 Tomahawk, have class-leading VRMs comparable to those on models costing significantly more. Their B450 and B550 boards have also tended to be quite good on the VRM side of things.

    It's not like we can say that for sure. For all we know, he could have been tossed off.
