A gas leak in underground pipes is considered the alleged cause of the accident, which caused large-scale fires. According to experts, the most likely version is that it was a propane injection and it was an industrial accident. The possibility of a terrorist attack is not considered.
There are several petrochemical plants in Kaohsiung City. It is not clear whether the explosions were caused by problems with their pipelines.
According to eyewitnesses, the explosions were so strong that cars and motorcycles flew into the air.
Firefighters and rescuers continue working at the site of the tragedy. Authorities have ordered the closure of schools and offices there, as well as evacuation of the population from hazardous areas.
