A blaze set off a series of large explosions at a chemical storage compound in the port of Jingjiang, north of Shanghai, on 22 April. The city's government said the fire was brought under control and that there were no casualties. At the time of writing, the cause of the fire was unknown.
This video, shot from a platform looking over the compound, shows flames spreading through the building before sparking a series of huge blasts. China's media outlet 163.com says there are a total of 42 reservoirs at the oil processing facility where the explosion occurred. According to photos published on social networks, a huge column of dense smoke is rising hundreds of meters into the sky.
There have been no immediate reports about any injured or dead in the incident so far. However, some people in the area were suffering from shortness of breath and chest pains after a large fire began, according to local news outlets.
