At least two people were killed and two others sustained injuries in a blast at a factory here on Wednesday.
The blast took place in Velu village of the district around 11 am when an oil tanker kept in the factory caught fire.
Sparks emanating from a welding work was the cause of the fire.
The blast was so intense that body parts of the deceased and other objects flew high in the air.
