Death Toll in Mexico Fireworks Blasts Reaches 39

MEXICO CITY – Fatalities from last month’s fireworks explosions in central Mexico climbed to 39 with the deaths this week of three people undergoing treatment for injuries received in the conflagration, authorities said Friday.

Two women and a man hurt in the series of blasts at the San Pablito Fireworks Market died at hospitals.

Eleven other injured survivors remained hospitalized at various facilities in Greater Mexico City, authorities said.

The explosions, one of the worst incidents of its kind in Mexican history in terms of fatalities, started shortly before 3 pm on Dec. 20 at the market in Tultepec, a municipality in Mexico state located just outside the Federal District.

Witness accounts indicate the blasts began when a boy lit a rocket.
