A series of blasts has ripped through a Serbian munitions factory, killing at least two workers and injuring at least 16, officials say.
Belgrade Fire Brigade Commander Milos Majstorovic said the first explosion took place after 2 p.m on November 23 at a warehouse where 500 rockets each with 30 kilograms of fuel had been stored.
"The explosion was followed by a fire in the warehouse, which is now localized, and we are still on the site to ensure the safety of our citizens," he told journalists near the scene.
The cause of the explosion was not immediately known.
The plant is located 15 kilometers south of the capital, Belgrade.
Police and firefighters sealed off the area, where thick billowing smoke could be seen.
Several cars at the factory’s parking lot were on fire.
In June, two blasts hit an ammunition factory in the central Serbian town of Cacak in the span of 15 days.
The causes of these explosions are still being investigated.
