Two dead in blaze at fireworks warehouse in Curacao

Authorities in Curacao say another person has died from an explosion at a fireworks warehouse, raising the death toll to two victims.



Willemstad (Curacao): Authorities in Curacao say another person has died from an explosion at a fireworks warehouse, raising the death toll to two victims.

Police spokesman Reggie Huggins says seven people were injured in the explosion yesterday at the government-owned building where fireworks were stored.

He says all the casualties were public employees working at the warehouse.

It is unclear what caused the explosion, which set off a blaze that completely destroyed the building.

Huggins and other government officials raised the death toll at a late yesterday news conference.

Curacao is a sparsely populated Dutch Caribbean island of nearly 150,000 people just north of Venezuela.
