The explosions came after a fire started Wednesday evening from the plant’s warehouse storing incendiary firework fuses. 

Workers and residents nearby were evacuated after the incident was reported to the local fire department. 

The fire was extinguished as of 6 am Thursday, said local authorities. 

Fireworks production has been paused since late June due to the summer heat and all workers but three were in the factory when the fire started.
