On Thursday, the Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition saw a fire incident at the booth of IAT Automobile Technology, a Beijing-based car designer. The fire seemed to come from an IAT concept car. The fire generated heavy black smoke and appeared to affect the surrounding booth, according to videos from the site. IAT released a statement confirming the fire incident and said it is working with the exhibitor to investigate the cause and will release an official statement once it knows more. IAT was founded in 2007 and specializes in vehicle designs and car parts manufacturing. The company is a supplier for well-known brands such as Toyota, Honda, Xpeng, and Nio. The Guangzhou auto show takes place in the southern Chinese city from Dec. 30 to Jan. 8. [Jiemian, in Chinese]
