Blast in SAIL's central Indian steel plant kills at least six

A blast at Steel Authority of India‘s plant in central state of Chhattisgarh on Tuesday (October 09) killed at least six people, a police official said.

State-run SAIL is one of India‘s biggest steel producers, and the blast occurred at its Bhilai plant.

The fire, which occurred during a scheduled maintenance job at its Bhilai plant, has now been controlled, SAIL said. There was no immediate comment from the company on whether production was affected.

Bhilai District Collector Umesh Kumar Agarwal said 14 people were brought to a hospital out of which some are seriously injured.

Bhilai Steel Plant is India‘s sole producer and supplier of rails for Indian Railways, and a major producer of a large variety of wide and heavy steel plates and structural steel, according to the company’s website.

The plant has annual steel production capacity of 3.153 million tonnes, with products including wire rods, according to SAIL.
