DHAKA, Bangladesh - At least six people were killed and several others injured in an explosion and subsequent fire at an oxygen plant in Sitakunda, southeastern Bangladesh, on Saturday. The blast occurred at the Sitakunda oxygen plant, which is located in the Chattogram district, at around 5:45 pm local time. According to officials, the explosion was caused by a gas leak, which led to a massive fire engulfing the entire factory. Sitakunda Sitakunda Firefighters rushed to the scene and worked for hours to control the blaze. The injured were rushed to local hospitals for treatment, while the bodies of the deceased were sent for post-mortem examination. "The fire was caused by a gas leak in the Sitakunda oxygen plant. We suspect that the explosion occurred due to the gas leak. We have already started our investigation into the matter," said Chattogram's Additional Superintendent of Police, Anwar Hossain. The explosion caused panic among local residents in Sitakunda, who reported hearing a loud bang and seeing smoke rising from the factory. Many people rushed to the scene to help with the rescue efforts. "Everyone was running around in panic. We heard a loud explosion and saw smoke rising from the Sitakunda oxygen plant. It was a scary sight," said a local resident who witnessed the incident. The incident highlights the dangers of working in industrial facilities and the importance of adhering to safety regulations. Bangladesh has a poor track record when it comes to workplace safety, with frequent accidents and incidents reported in factories and other industrial facilities. In 2013, more than 1,100 people were killed in the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in the capital, Dhaka. The incident drew global attention to the unsafe working conditions in the country's factories and led to a push for better safety regulations. Sitakunda Sitakunda The government has since taken steps to improve workplace safety, but many say more needs to be done to prevent such accidents from happening. Saturday's incident in Sitakunda is a tragic reminder of the need for continued efforts to improve safety standards in Bangladesh's factories and other industrial facilities. The authorities must take swift action to ensure that such incidents do not happen again in the future For more updates keep visiting our website  where we provide unbiased, true and top stories of the world.
