THANE: Two peo­ple suf­fered burn in­juries when a boiler in a dye­ing firm in Bhi­wandi ex­ploded on Wed­nes­day. Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the in­ci­dent took place around 12 noon at Atul Dye­ing firm at Narayan com­pound in the ju­ris­dic­tion of Shanti Na­gar po­lice sta­tion. The two are employees of the firm and were weld­ing the boiler, when the blast took place. “The two employees have sus­tained around 80 per cent burns and have been shifted to Sion hos­pi­tal in Mum­bai. Dur­ing pri­mary in­ves­ti­ga­tion, we found that the duo was weld­ing the boiler, which had oil.
