Explosion of Cooking Gas Cylinder in Kaushambi, Uttar Pradesh Injures 8 People

Late on Friday night, an explosion caused by an LPG cylinder in the kitchen of a sweet factory in the Manauri Bazar area of Uttar Pradesh’s Kaushambi district left at least eight people injured, with three of them in critical condition, according to the police. The blast’s impact was so severe that it not only devastated the sweet factory but also led to the collapse of two adjacent structures.

A joint rescue effort by the police and firefighters was launched to extinguish the ensuing fire, which took several hours. The three critically injured individuals were promptly admitted to a hospital.

Initial suspicions by the police indicate the possibility of firecrackers being stored in one of the affected buildings, potentially triggering the explosion. A thorough investigation is underway to determine the precise cause of the explosion and the subsequent fire.

Brijesh Kumar Srivastava, the Superintendent of Police in Kaushambi, reported that some individuals suffered minor injuries in the incident, and the fire was successfully contained within a few hours. Authorities are actively working to determine if firecrackers were indeed stored within any of the structures.

According to reports, the explosion was a result of an LPG cylinder leakage, causing the walls of the sweet factory and an adjacent plywood warehouse to collapse. Furthermore, a portion of Jaiprakash, also known as Bholu’s house, was affected by the blast that sent shockwaves throughout the area.

The explosion led to a subsequent fire that engulfed the affected buildings and resulted in the destruction of several vehicles parked nearby. Local residents initiated rescue efforts, promptly contacting the fire department and police for assistance.

Senior police officials arrived at the scene along with fire tenders to rescue individuals trapped in the affected structures. Additional fire tenders from Prayagraj were also dispatched to help control the fire. Police officials noted that the plywood warehouse was owned by an individual named Madan Kesarwani.
