UPDATE: Firefighers entered the building shortly after 2:30pm. Traffic heading eastbound on Wanghai Road has been re-opened.

We first began receiving photos and videos of a fire that broke out near Coastal Rose Garden 2 just after 11am this morning.

The smoke could be seen from miles away.

Sirens of the approaching fire trucks could first be heard at 11:20 am.

Kiko of ShekouDaily was on the scene just as the first group of firefighters arrived.

By around 11:30 am, Wanghai Road was closed to through traffic from GongYuan Nanlu down to the Gas Station near the Penninsula complex entrance.

More than 10 firetrucks could easily be counted on the scene.

The building on fire appears to belong to Shenzhen Highspeed Boats Technology Company Limited. 

According to their website, they were established in 1999.

The location seems to be the same as what was formerly known as Shekou Shipyard established in 1952.

The company is mainly engaged in R&D, design, production and sales of high-speed and high-performance boats and luxury yachts with new composite materials technology.

2 hours later, the fire seems close to being put out.
