It's good no one got hurt and had the situation under control. Accidents happen, just be more careful.

Fires, car accidents etc happen everyday, of course you'll have some people trying to connect two unrelated events. Don't see the same posters here saying this is a crazy American agenda like they do in the other story.

The news has said this fire was caused by sparks from demolition work.

This company obviously never took any warnings it has received -- after several accidents -- seriously. And since they refuse to give any information, it's pretty clear that something is up.

Here is the video footage from TV Asahi: http://news.tv-asahi.co.jp/news_society/articles/000057341.html

oh dear it might be time to kick Japanese steel companies out of Japan because of the danger that they pose to the J public, bit like the US military warehouse fire, Looks much larger and more dangerous than the US fire too.

A huge fire ripped through the area near Haneda.......(Hell if you are going to over-exaggerate on the US side how about fairness in reporting on the Japanese side too!)

Strangely enough, a similar incident occurs almost daily at home and overseas. What's going on?

For such a recently peaceful country, suddenly a USA base explodes, and now an important government connected company explodes? Japanese constition article 9?

Conspiracy theorist perhaps? BTW no US base exploded. and why assume the other was Japanese government connected?

Seeing ghosts where none exist?

Explosions in Japan and China, all in such a short timeframe. What's the rest of the story?

Nothing else apart from negligence.

Some people paranoia is huge. Alex has a real life, she's not always here to comment news. Dear friends, my time zone is different from yours! Anyway negligence is always bad, also in this accident of course! And I compared the blast in the US base to Tianjin because the earlier news spoke about possible chemical stuff involved, plus I had seen the videos and they were scary. Nes in many sourced sounded very serious. Stop attacking users with your paranoia! I can comment this news only NOW.

I hope there will be no more explosions.

Sounds like Sagamihara!

The Kawasaki city fire department said the blaze at the plant, owned by a unit of giant steelmaker Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal, may have been caused by workers who were using gas burners to dismantle the site.

So it was dismantled a little early. Ahead of schedule!

I want them to investigate, draw up a plan and guarantee this never happens again.
