Around 44 workers were injured when massive fire broke out in an agrochemical company in Andhra Pradesh's Srikakulam district Saturday morning, police said.


According to the police, the fire broke out following an explosion at the plant. Some workers are reported to be feared trapped in the plant.

Fire broke out at Nagarjuna Agrichem Limited following an explosion in the fifth block of the plant, which produces agrochemicals. The plant is located Chilkapalem in Srikakulam district of north coastal Andhra, about 700 km from here.

Meanwhile, 44 fire engines have been pressed into the service to douse the fire.
