One person died and 19 others were injured on Monday when a blast ripped through a plywood factory in Belarus's southern Brest region, a local emergencies official said.
"A fire broke out as a result of the blast, and some 100 square meters of the roof collapsed," Vitaly Novitsky said.
Eighteen people received serious injuries, and one was still buried under the debris, he added.
The fire at the factory has been extinguished and rescuers are working at the site.
