There was no indication of what may have caused the explosion.

Police officers said the surrounding area had not been damaged.

“Glass windows on one house have been affected by the explosion but no other reports,” Nattapat said.

Police Lieutenant General Naiyawat Phademchid stated that Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin – currently in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum –  had been informed of the incident. 

“Estimate of 20 deaths, however, we cannot confirm the official death toll,” said the police officer, who is responsible for lower western

He said officials were sealing the surrounding area, and would begin to identify the bodies once the situation had stabilised, without going into further details.

“There were on average about 20 to 30 people working at this factory every day,” he informed. 

Srettha also ordered an investigation into whether the workshop was operating illegally, as well as the cause of the incident.
