Two killed in explosion at fireworks factory

Virudhunagar, Tamil Nadu Jun 9 (UNI) Two workers were charred to death in a massive explosion at a Fireworks factory at Maraneri near Sivakasi, here today.

Police said the explosion, which occurred this afternoon at Krishnasamy Fireworks Factory, had razed down two godowns and left a huge plume of smoke blanketing the area. Fire tenders rushed to the spot and extinguished the blaze.

Two charred bodies, identified as Azhagarsamy and Ponnupandiyan were found in the wreckage of the blast. However, other workers engaged in making fancy variety crackers in nearby godowns managed to escape soon after the explosion.
Friction caused while handling highly inflammable chemicals led to the fire, preliminary investigations said.
The bodies were removed to the Government hospital at Sivakasi for post-mortem. Senior revenue and police officials were conducting an inquiry to find whether there were any violations in adopting safety norms prescribed by the government.
