A powerful explosion on Monday has destroyed an ammunitions factory near the city of Grevena, northern Greece.
According to information released by the Fire Brigade and the police, three employees are considered missing, while a guard that had just come off his shift and was leaving to go home was injured in the explosion and transferred to Grevena hospital in a state of shock.
The director of Grevena hospital, Eftychia Kapatou, told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that the guard has received first aid and his condition gives no cause for concern.
The whole factory completely destroyed from the explosion
“The whole production unit has been destroyed. It is a place of carnage,” said an officer of the local fire service unit.
According to the officer, the explosion was so big that it “moved boulders up to 200-300 meters away.”
The police have cordoned off the area for precautionary reasons.
