Marsh gas explodes
    2018-07-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MARSH gas explosion sent fire 1 meter in the air and caused heavy smoke at the Jingmicun housing estate in Futian District on Wednesday, according to a report by the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily.

No one was injured in the accident, but heavy smoke permeated the neighborhood for half an hour.

Residents nearby were evacuated by the property management immediately following the accident.

A resident was quoted by the newspaper as saying that she heard three bangs when the explosion happened at around 10 a.m.

“I was scared to death, especially by the third bang,” said the woman.

The explosion of the underground marsh gas is thought to have been caused by high temperatures and high concentrations.

The police investigation showed that workers were cleaning the sewage pipeline when the incident occurred. The explosion was caused by the improper methods of the workers.

The case is still under investigation.

A marsh gas explosion was also reported in December 2016 in Luohu District. A 12-year-old child was killed in the accident at a housing estate in the district. For fun, the child stood on a manhole cover of a septic tank and tried to squeeze a lit firecracker through the hole. The explosion propelled the manhole cover 2 meters into the air and killed the child.
