Blast rocks Tianjin, 2 months after fatal explosion

Posted:

Two months after a massive blast killed 165 people in a major port city in northern China, Tianijn has been rattled again by a warehouse explosion.


   The official Xinhua News Agency reported Tuesday that a blast hit a warehouse for alcohol materials in the city Monday night and started a fire. Citing local authorities, it says no casualties have been reported so far.


   Workplace safety hazards abound in China. In August, a warehouse complex storing large amounts of hazardous chemicals caught fire and exploded in Tianjin, killing 165, mostly firefighters. It also left eight people missing.
