Surat: At least 24 workers were injured after a fire broke out at a chemical plant following an explosion in Gujarat's Surat city, said officials on Wednesday. 

Basant Pareek, the chief fire officer in charge of Surat, said that the fire started around 2 am at a chemical factory situated in the Sachin GIDC industrial area. The blaze was triggered by an explosion in a large tank due to the leakage of inflammable chemicals stored within.
