A source who preferred anonymity said the gas cylinders exploded apparently due to the high temperature inside the storage place. Most of the workers in the factory were Indians.

The injured were sent to Saqr Government Hospital for treatment.

Civil Defence who had rushed to the scene managed to contain the fire it could spread to other areas.
