A massive explosion, seen from miles away, has occurred at a Shell production plant in Moerdijk, Netherlands.
Two “enormously loud bangs” were reported by bystanders. There are currently no plans to evacuate the area around the factory, Omroep Brabant reports.
Fire crews are currently working at the scene. The fire is "manageable" but not yet contained, according to the Central and West-Brabant Safety Region.
All personnel are accounted for, according to Shell, but several people suffered minor injuries.
It is not yet known exactly what chemical caused the fire but it may be ethylbenzene or methylbenzene, according to local media.
