A massive explosion at a fireworks factory in northern Portugal killed at least seven people. 

Officials from the Civil Protection Service and local police told Portuguese media at the scene there was a huge explosion in the early evening at the family-owned factory in the small village of Avoes.

All of the workers at the factory came from three local families, according to Manuel Coutinho, Lamego Council’s emergency services coordinator. He told Radio Renascenca that officials had little hope of finding survivors.

Nearly 100 firefighters, paramedics and police officers are on the scene, according to reports.

From 7 to 15 people were in the factory at the time of the explosion.

The factory owner, named locally as Egas Sequeira, is believed to be among the dead.

The Sun reports that one local resident claimed he had been told seven people had been inside the factory at the time of the tragedy.

Maria Almeida, who was in a cafe near the scene of the explosion, said: “I felt the explosions. There was a lot of smoke and then I saw the flames. It looked like a war zone.”

She said it was not the first time there had been an explosion at the factory.

Tragic.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those involved.

God Bless.
