Jakarta: At least 32 workers were killed and 46 others injured in an explosion at an Indonesian fireworks factory on Thursday.

The incident occurred at around 9 a.m. at the factory located in Tangerang area.

"The bodies were fully charred and we are currently looking for more bodies," a police officer said.

According to the official, the explosion was triggered by a short circuit and the subsequent fire was caused due to too many raw materials stored in the building.
