Firefighters extinguish the flames at this fireworks factory in southern India. Around 40 sheds caught fire when a worker carrying chemicals slipped and fell sparking a series of explosions. At least eight people were killed and more than 40 injured. The factory's owners are offering 200-thousand rupees just over four thousand US dollars to those who lost their families in the blaze. They're also contributing to the funeral costs. The local government here is also providing aid. [Kkssr Ramachandran, Legislator]: "Upon getting information about the accident, the Chief Minister, directed me to immediately visit the victims and provide all assistance that is necessary." This is the second incident of its kind in the southern Tamil Nadu state. Earlier in the month 16 people were killed in a fire in another fireworks factory.
