A 20-year-old worker suffered third-degree burns to his face, while a 32-year-old worker suffered second-degree burns to his legs and a broken left leg, a fire official said.
Police said the blast appeared to have occurred after a fire broke out as the four Vietnamese were working to make a tank designed to carry a chemical needed in making semiconductors.
The National Forensic Service and the Occupational Safety and Health Research Institute are set to conduct a joint probe to try to find the exact cause of the accident, police said. ■
