Questions raised about Galaxy S5 availability after a PCB factory destroys in fire

A huge factory in Anseong, South Korea, which was hired to manufacture the PCBs of the upcoming Galaxy S5 was destroyed in a fire. An estimated $1 billion in equipment has been destroyed in this disaster even though there were 287 firefighters at the place of incident trying to contain the huge fire.

The fire started (or was detected at 7AM on Sunday and though the fire fighters reached in time, everything within the vicinity was destroyed and could not be saved. All the components inside and the heavy machinery was destroyed. The fire was so huge that it took 279 firefighters with 81 fire trucks six hours to extinguish it completely. Since the factory was an outsourse platform for the Galaxy S5, many questions have been raised regarding the availability of the phone. But Samsung has assured that this incident will not have any effects on the launch which was scheduled for April. Apparently this was not the only factory which was given the task so nothing will disrupt the Galaxy S5 launch.
