A man suffered minor injuries following an explosion at a factory in Ekurhuleni when a 48kg gas cylinder containing ammonia exploded.
The incident occurred in Chloorkop, Kempton Park, with authorities cautioning motorists to keep roads clear for emergency services.
The situation was swiftly addressed by emergency management services, and the injured individual received medical attention after being transported to the hospital.
The authorities have initiated an investigation into the cause of the incident.
Fortunately, the explosion took place in an enclosed and controlled area, with no impact on nearby roads.
This incident occurred in the same week as another suspected gas explosion in Johannesburg’s CBD, which tragically resulted in the death of one person and left several others injured.
