India fireworks factory explosion horror at least 11 dead in massive explosion

At least 11 people are reported to have died following a large explosion and fire at a fireworks business in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India, with about 40 wounded.

On Tuesday, a large explosion in a fireworks factory in Harda, Madhya Pradesh, India, killed at least 10 persons and wounded over 80 others.

Following the incident, Indian media showed images and videos of a tower of flames and dozens of ambulances deployed to rescue the injured. Army helicopters were also requested.

An employee of the Harda district factory stated: “We can confirm seven deaths so far”, requesting anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. “We have 65 injured admitted here and have referred 10 others to big hospitals.”

According to senior district official Kailash Chand Parte, who was in charge of directing rescue efforts from the facilities, around 15 fire engines were fighting the fierce fire.

“At least eight people had very serious injuries. We are here at the site focused on rescue work and sending people to hospitals so we can immediately confirm the number of dead,” Parte told AFP. “We have managed to rescue 70 to 75 people so far with serious injuries. Right now most of them are rushed to the local hospitals.”

According to him, 200 to 300 individuals were working at the facility, and they had no idea how many people were within the property at the time of the explosion.

“Because of the strength of the bomb, nearly ten buildings around the complex were damaged. We have 15 fire engines on the scene, but the fire is still out of control.
