Five Dead in Oil Refinery Explosion in Eastern China

BEIJING - Five people died and three were injured on Sunday in an explosion at an oil refinery in Anhui province in eastern China, according to local authorities, Xinhua news agency reported Monday.

The victims were trapped inside the building after the blast and subsequent fire.

Fire fighters managed to rescue three people alive, out of whom two are still in hospital with minor injuries and the third has been discharged.

The explosion took place around 5:20 pm in one of the warehouses of the refinery, owned by the Wanhua oil company, but the causes of the accident are still unknown.

The air pollution monitoring stations did not register high levels of pollution after the fire although measures have been taken to reduce the pollution in the water caused by the incident, officials said.
