A fire and explosions at a golf ball factory in southern Taiwan have resulted in the death of at least five people, with five others still missing. Over 100 people were injured and taken to the hospital. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen expressed condolences to the victims’ families and plans to visit those affected by the disaster. Natural gas may have contributed to the explosions. This incident is not the first major fire in Taiwan, as previous incidents in 2015 and 2021 have caused significant damage and casualties.
