Two people were killed and six received injuries in an explosion Friday at a sugar refinery near Kakinada City, India, local news organizations reported.
An initial investigation points to a short circuit in a conveyor used in the facility’s packing area as the cause of the blast and a fire, coverage by India Today said. First responders transported the injured persons to area hospitals for treatment.
“The prima facie indicates that an explosion occurred due to a short circuit at the conveyor belt in the factory which is used for loading sugar bags,” Kakinada SP Ravindranath Badu told OneIndia.
One person died on scene and another passed away in a hospital, according to NDTV.
