• Fire hits chemical storage company in China


    SHANGHAI: A facility storing chemicals and fuel caught fire and was rocked by explosions in the Chinese city of Jingjiang on Friday, the government and reports said, but no casualties were reported. The blast recalled huge explosions caused by improper storage of chemicals in the northern city of Tianjin last August, when at least 165 people were killed and fears were raised of toxic contamination. The Jingjiang government said on its verified microblog that the fire, which started at around 9:40 a.m. (0140 GMT), was “under control” with no deaths or injuries.
