An explosion at a chemical factory in western India has killed at least two people and injured more than 120, officials said.
The powerful explosion, caused by a malfunction in the factory's boiler, shattered windows in buildings near the factory in Dombivli in Maharashtra state.
Government spokesman Anirudh Ashtaputre said a fire at the site was contained by early evening. The explosion reduced the two-story structure to rubble.
