Explosion at laboratory

JOHOR BARU: A warehouse turned into a laboratory was almost burnt after 30 glass containers filled with nitrate acid suddenly exploded.

Shards of broken glass from the explosion could be found about 30m away from the site.

No one was hurt in the incident as no workers had reported for duty at 8am.

Firemen discovered a spillage of about 70 litres of fuming nitric acid in the warehouse, said Kulaijaya Fire and Rescue Department head Ithnin Osman.

He added that the authorities were investigating the cause of the explosion.
