Brewery Boiler Explosion Killing at Least 2 People

LAHORE: A powerful boiler blast at a beverage unit killed at least two people and razed its building here on Thursday on Multan Road.

The massive blast created cracks in many nearby buildings, houses and offices besides shattering their windowpanes.

The video clips of the incident showed a huge fireball into the sky, terrifying the locals who initially thought it a terror attack.

It had also alarmed the law-enforcement agencies as they were busy maintaining law and order following the protest of the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan on Multan Road.

The witnesses said the explosion was heard around 10-km away from Multan Road.

They said hundreds of residents rushed out of the buildings.

Dozens of fire tenders were dispatched to the spot.

The incident occurred at the Benz Factory located at Awan Town on Multan Road.

He said two people suffered critical injuries – one of them died instantly while the other was shifted to hospital with 50 per cent burns.

The deceased has been identified as Y (33) while S H got multiple injuries and burns when he jumped out of the building to save his life.

There were some reports that the injured has also breathed his last during treatment.

Rescue 1122 controlled the blaze after hectic efforts of two hours or so.

The factory has been handed over to the police for further investigation, the spokesperson said.

A brewery in an Islamic republic (Pakistan) where drinking is forbidden?
Sure is a strange place for a brewery to be located.

One hell of an explosion though.. whatever it was.

Re: Brewery Boiler Explosion Killing at Least 2 People

No secondary explosions, so probably not munitions. Looks a lot like a large pressure vessel or structure erupted some type of an ignitable gas with a lot of energy. Fermentation doesn't make ignitable gas and brewery vessels aren't very big. Could be a natural gas leak that filled up a building then exploded.
