Beijing, Jan 16 (Prensa Latina) Authorities in Liaoning, northeast China, confirmed two people killed, 12 missing and 36 injured, some of them seriously, as a result of an explosion and subsequent fire that broke out at a chemical plant in the Panshan County.

The event occurred at noon this Sunday while maintenance work was being carried out at the Panjin Haoye Chemical company. The firefighters managed to completely control the fire around 9:00 p.m. local time.

The causes of the incident are still unknown. Preliminary assessments considered the presence of volatile compounds in the environment near the plant to be normal and also ruled out air contamination.
