Constabulary said that lots of pyrotechnic chemicals were stored in the manufactory by the time the tragedy hit.

“We think that an accidental fire led to the blast resulting in the prostration of the building housing the illegal fireworks manufactory”, the police added. The emergency responders rushed the casualties to the infirmary.
