Several fire trucks rushed to a bomb fuse manufacturing facility of the Army Ordnance Department in Ayutthaya province this morning (Friday), after several explosions were heard coming from the compound.
At least two people were injured and have been rushed to the provincial hospital.
Villagers living near the factory said that they heard several explosions and saw a huge cloud of white smoke billowing into the sky. One of them said that this is the third time that explosions have occurred in the compound in the 30 years that the factory has been located in their neighbourhood.
Army sentries set up barricades to prevent unauthorised vehicles or individuals entering the compound.
The extent of the damage is not yet known, as police have also been prevented from entering.
