Jharkhand, Sept 25: Eight people dead and 25 injured after a fire broke out at a firecracker factory in Jharkhand’s Kumardubi.

Police sources said that a huge amount of explosive powder was stocked at the three-storey building, where the blast followed after it caught fire following a short circuit. The blast caused a larger fire which soon also engulfed other houses around.

The injured have been admitted in local hospitals and some have been sent to neighbouring West Bengal. Senior police officials have rushed to the spot.
