3 Killed, 50 Injured in chemical factory explosion in India

Three people were killed and dozens more were injured in an explosion at a chemical factory in India this morning, officials said.

The blast, which happened around 11:30 a.m. local time in Dombivli — roughly 20 miles outside Mumbai — was so loud that companies nearby felt the vibrations even as residents complained that their window panes were shattered, officials said.

Fire crews worked to put out the blaze triggered by the explosion. The injured were rushed to nearby hospitals.

Police said they sealed the area around the company where the blast took place.
