At least two people died, and 74 left wounded after a Turkish fireworks factory was rocked by a series of explosions on Friday.
According to Health Minister Fahrettin Koca, more than 150 workers were inside the factory on the outskirts of the town of Hendek, Sakarya province, when the blasts occurred.
The ongoing outbursts were hindering efforts for firefighter teams to control the blaze.
