  • Description

    Three people were reported missing, and 13 were seriously injured in an explosion followed by a fire which caused extensive damage to a chemical plant near Escobar on Thursday (June 18th).

    Well over a hundred firemen from nearby towns and villages were rushed to the United States-owned Parke-Davis Chemical Works on the outskirts of the tiny settlement which is 37 miles (60 kilometres) north of Buenos Aires.

    The extent and heat of the blaze prevented immediate rescue or recovery operations. Police believe the blast could have been set off by a leakage from a gas tank or pipe in the plant.
