A chemical explosion at a factory in eastern China’s Shandong province killed one person and injured nine on Saturday.
The powerful blast, which hit a village in Zibo at around 8:40pm, was felt five kilometres away, according to Luzhong Morning News.
Windows in nearby residential complexes were reportedly shattered.
Residential blocks were located within a 1km radius of the blast site, a clear violation of laws and regulations, according to Qilu Evening News.
Rescuers have arrived on the scene. It is not yet clear what caused the explosion.
The explosion came just ten days after powerful chemical blasts tore through a logistics port in Tianjin, killing more than 100 people and injuring hundreds more.
