No casualties had been reported as of 6 p.m.
Ten employees at the factory were evacuated to the roof of the facility.
Police and the fire department said they were investigating the cause of the fire.
The construction involved building groundwork for a P10 factory that the company aims to begin operation by the second half of next year. The construction kicked off at the end of 2015.
This is the second safety-related accident that occurred at the Paju facility. In January this year, a contract worker was killed while replacing wires for a cargo lift transporting LCD panels.
