38 people have died and two are missing after a fire at a factory in central China, state media has reported, citing local authorities.

The fire took place at a plant in Anyang city, in the central Henan Province on Monday afternoon, news agency Xinhua reported on Tuesday, without sharing further details.

State media said rescue services first received reports of a fire at 4.22pm, at Kaixinda Trading Co Ltd, in the Wenfeng district, or “high-tech zone”, in Anyang city. “After receiving the alarm, the municipal fire rescue detachment immediately dispatched forces to the scene,” broadcaster CCTV reported.

“Public security, emergency response, municipal administration, and power supply units rushed to the scene at the same time to carry out emergency handling and rescue work,” it said, adding the fire had been extinguished by around 11pm.

In addition to the dead and missing, two are in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, CCTV reported.

Authorities said “criminal suspects” had been taken into custody in connection with the fire, but did not provide further details.
