The cause of the explosion was announced at a shipyard in the Amur Region. The solvent vapor has ignited.

As the plant's public relations and media specialist Valery Silkin told EastRussia, the cotton occurred today at 8:20 - work was carried out to clean up excess solvent in the premises of the ship under construction. According to him, workers and managers of the production unit of the enterprise violated the requirements of labor protection and safety measures, as a result of which the solvent vapors caught fire. At that moment the painters were there. The workers of the enterprise helped them to get out and took them to the factory health center, where they were given the first medical aid before the ambulance arrived. The victims were taken to the Amur Regional Clinical Hospital.

During the day, investigators, police, prosecutors, specialists from the regional labor inspectorate and the Ministry of Emergency Situations work on the territory of the plant.   

It is known that four people were injured... Governor Vasily Orlov said on his Instagram page that one victim refused to be hospitalized, and two received moderate injuries. Another person in serious condition is now in intensive care.
