Victims suffered burns and topical injuries, some obtained as they were escaping the blast. All the injured are expected to survive, the spokesman said.

City officials are continuing to monitor the situation, which poses no danger to the public.

Kuraray America, Inc. specializes, chemical, fiber and resin production.
