Forty firefighters arrived in two trucks to stamp out the fire, which ignited in sawdust lying in the workshop area.
When firefighters sprayed the workshop with water, sawdust blew all over to engulf the entire factory area.
After receiving first aid in Thong Nhat General Hospital in HCMC, some of the 21 workers were released but 16 of the severely critical cases were transferred to Cho Ray Hospital for further treatment.
