Update: MSI has released an official statement, which explains: "A fire accident occurred in MSI Baoan factory in Shenzhen on November 5th afternoon. MSI activated its emergency measures and notified the fire department to deal with it immediately. No injuries were caused and the production line was not damaged. In the future, MSI will continue to strengthen the education and training of personnel. At present, all units are operating normally. Thank you for your concern".

A massive fire has broken out at one of MSI's gigantic plants in Kunshan, China -- with people posting the news to Reddit and Twitter. Check it out:

You can watch a video of the MSI factory fire in China on Reddit here, but it looks pretty serious. This news is just months after MSI CEO Charles Chiang died after falling from a building back in July 2020, and right in the middle of what is most likely MSI's busiest time ever.

We have sold-out and hotly-wanted GeForce RTX 30 series cards, new X570 motherboards for AMD's kick ass Zen 3 processors, and AMD's upcoming RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.

We hope no one has been hurt in the fire, and we don't know if this will have a negative effect on MSI in 2021 and their production -- we will have to wait and see.
