DUBAI, Jan 9 (Reuters) – A huge fire broke out at a cosmetics factory in a central Iranian town causing a blast that injured several people, Iran‘s state media reported on Tuesday.
The blast was caused by a gas leak, according to the country’s semi-official SNN news agency.
Two explosions in Iran last week killed nearly 100 people and wounded scores at a ceremony to commemorate commander Qassem Soleimani who was killed by a U.S. drone in 2020.
The incident on Tuesday in an industrial complex in Iran‘s Alborz province caused injuries to 23 people, some of whom are in a critical condition, IRNA added.
