What happened in

An explosion near a chemical plant in Zhangjiakou City, in Hebei province, killed dozens and destroyed up to 50 cars. According to an investigation, a vehicle carrying “dangerous chemicals” blew up and ignited other vehicles that were close by.

An explosion occurred near an enterprise in Zhangjiakou city on Wednesday, November 28, at 0:41 local time. Hebei Shenghua described itself as a “backbone enterprise of the city, and for the domestic chlor-alkali industry and one of the Top 500 chemical enterprises in the country.”

At the moment, the security forces have not reported the causes of the explosion. However, people suspect a car carrying the highly flammable compound ethane for use by a separate nearby chemical factory exploded as it was passing the Shenghua plant.

The fire spread to other cars but not to the Shenghua enterprise itself, which continued to operate as usual.

As a result of the fire that occurred after the explosion, 38 trucks and 12 cars burned down.

The plant is located in Zhangjiakou, which is to play host to the 2022 Winter Olympics. “We request that citizens do not go to the site to watch in order to avoid disrupting recovery efforts,” the official statement said.

This is claimed to be the video from the place on an accident:
