Chemical plant blast in China kills 19, injures 12

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) An explosion at a chemical plant in China has killed 19 people and injured 12, the local government said on Friday (July 13), the latest deadly industrial incident in the world's largest producer of chemicals.

It is not yet clear what caused Thursday (July 12) evening's blast at Yibin Hengda Technology in an industrial park several hours southeast of Chengdu, the capital of the southwestern province of Sichuan, authorities in Jiang'an county said.

The injured are in stable condition and an investigation has begun, state news agency Xinhua said.

The company did not immediately answer telephone calls from Reuters to seek information.

The fire, which broke out early on Thursday evening, was put out by 11:30 p.m., the government said in its statement.
