    "Two people killed, three others injured in a blast at a firecracker storage facility in Bengaluru earlier today," DCP (South) Harish Pandey told news agency ANI. Fire tenders went to the spot to put out the fire.

    "The origin of the blast is being investigated. It was neither a cylinder blast nor cracker blast or a blast caused by a short circuit. There were no pieces of compressors also," Pandey added.

    The bodies of the victims were thrown away from the godown to the roads due to the impact of the blast. As many as 10 two-wheelers and a truck were damaged in the explosion.

    The deceased are identified as Muralidhar, Aslam and Fayaz, according to reports. The official also clarified that the explosion took place due to some 'unstable chemical', which was an industrial consignment.

    The cracker consignment in the godown is intact and the exact cause of the explosion needs to be investigated. According to the eyewitnesses it felt like a bomb blast. The tremors were felt in the buildings located 100 meters away.
