Fatal chemical fire

One person was killed and two others were severely injured when a wall collapsed during a fire at a chemical processing factory in the Indian City of Ahmedabad.

A fire official said the blaze has been started by a small explosion in a chemical mixing unit but as workers nearby attempted to flee the fire scene a wall crashed down trapping three of them.

A fire officer said: “ The fire was possibly caused because of some chemical reactions going wrong.”
