Fire put out at Japan's Mitsubishi Steel plant in Hokkaido

Thu 6th September, 2018 1:55am
TOKYO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - 
    * A fire that broke out at a steel production facility at
Mitsubishi Steel Manufacturing's  5632.T  joint venture with
Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp  5401.T  in Muroran,
Hokkaido, has been extinguished with little damage to the
facilities, a company official said.
    * The plant will work towards resuming special steel
production
after power supply from Hokkaido Electric Power Co  9509.T  is
restored, the official said. It usually takes about eight hours
to resume production after the power supply has been secured, he
said.
    * A powerful earthquake of magnitude 6.7 on Japan's northern
island of Hokkaido caused a landslide that engulfed houses
earlier on Thursday, injuring and trapping a number of people
and cutting power.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL5N1VR684
