A massive fire engulfed China’s Huawei telecommunications research lab in Dongguan City, resulting in the deaths of at least three people.


The research facility housed labs that developed antennas for their 5G systems, which have been protested and even outright banned in certain countries for fears of espionage. The blaze, which has been reportedly contained, has sparked rumors of sabotage. However, China isn’t known for safe workplace standards, and an industrial accident is also a very likely cause.
