Sony® Warehouse ablaze
The most tangible of all visible mysteries is fire. Fire can be mighty as a source of energy and as a necessity of life. But the same fire, when misused, can devastate your life.
During the morning of August 8, 2011, a mysterious fire broke out in the main optical disc distribution warehouse of Sony situated in Enfield, North of London. This unpreventable fire left nothing unburned in the Sony warehouse. Media coverage aired the fire swallowing the warehouse. The warehouse was managed and handled by DADC that operated distribution of DVD and CD blank media and movies, Sony Blu-ray Disc, and hi-tech games for the target consumers of the U.K. In all, Sony has a total of six warehouses spread across Europe.
The loss heaped up by the fire includes the finished products of entertainment meant for consumers across the U.K. and Ireland. However, the extent of damage incurred by Sony due to the fire is yet to be assessed. But this strange break out of fire is said to have spared human lives. This mystery gradually seems to unveil, as few on goers witnessed young lads with petrol bombs loitering around the storehouse. The same mob is supposed to have plundered and set the warehouse ablaze. It is a tailed incidence of the London riot as similar instances are evident across the capital. The fire has said to have encouraged theft as people are observed, moving out of the premises with consumer electronics goods as their booty.
The Sony Warehouse is one among the several victims of the riot. The Tottenham riot that emerged on Saturday had taken shape of an aggravated burglary and consequently had spread like wild fire. In this riot, 334 youths were arrested and the violent mob had been controlled over by 1700 additional cops from nine police forces deployed to take drastic action against the unruly mobsters. Fire in the Sony warehouse has left back a devastating effect on its employee but Sony is now all set to reformat the electronic hub.
