Authorities have detained "several" suspects in wake of an explosion at a chemical plant in southwest China that left 19 dead and injured 12 others, state media said.

A local news site said the fire had been extinguished and an investigation into its cause was underway.

The blast occurred at around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday at a chemical plant Hengda in an industrial park in Jiang'an County, Yibin City, according to the provincial work safety administration.
