A large explosion has ripped through Mexico’s best known fireworks market, leaving at least 32 people dead and nearly 100 injured. The death toll is expected to rise. 

The incident happened at about 2:50 p.m. local time on Tuesday when an explosion ripped through a popular fireworks market in Tultepec, which is about 15 miles north of Mexico City. Television footage shows a huge plume of smoke billowing in the sky while fireworks keep going off and exploding mid-air.

Tultepec Mayor Armando Portuguez Fuentes confirmed that at least 32 people were killed while police reported that nearly 100 others were injured, including some whom are gravely injured with burns covering up to 90 percent of their bodies, BNO News reports.

The Mexican Red Cross said it sent 10 ambulances with 50 paramedics to the scene.

Drone footage from the site showed that the market was devastated by the blast, and secondary explosions were continuing more than an hour after the incident began. A large number of emergency services have responded to the scene.

Here’s more!

Daily Mail reports that a fire engulfed the same market in 2005, setting off a chain of explosions that destroyed hundreds of stalls just ahead of Mexico’s Independence Day.

A similar fire at the San Pablito Market also destroyed hundreds of stands in September 2006.

Many in Mexico traditionally celebrate holidays — including Christmas and New Year’s — by setting off firecrackers and rockets.

San Pablito Market, the largest in the state of Mexico, has official permission to sell pyrotechnics.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those involved.

God Bless.
