In April 2012 a fireworks factory located in Russia experienced a fire that set off multiple large explosions. An amateur video has recently surfaced that captured the entire incident.
According to the Telegraph, the fireworks explosion occurred at a factory in the Russian city of Chiba.
The one-and-a-half minute video clip shows numerous explosions of the fireworks, a growing fire and a lot of billowing black smoke. At :39 a huge explosion occurs, setting off many fireworks. On the right of the building, a white car can be seen with a couple of people standing around. At one point, the drives off, but a few other individuals remain to watch the fire, and additional observers can be seen approaching.
During the fiery blast, a car can be seen driving on the road alongside the factory, shortly followed by a truck.
No word on who the amateur videographer is, but three versions of the video were uploaded on YouTube on June 14. The earliest of search results appears to be by YouTube user fckjulien1000 who describes the video simply as "Explosion Fire House in Russia (April 2012)".
MSN reported the factory caught fire "for undisclosed reasons".
Remarkably, no one was hurt, confirmed by local media, according to the Telegraph. Here's the video:
