A fire that broke out on Friday March 9 in a chemical factory in Boisar, near Mumbai, India, has killed at least three workers and injured many more. The fire was so fierce that it affected five other nearby chemical factories and the sound of exploding chemicals could be heard up to 12 kms away. The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage, but unfortunately deadly workplace incidents are common in India due to lax OHS regulations and enforcement.
