A welder has been killed in an explosion in the Iranian city Shahreza in Isfahan province, Mehr news reported Saturday.
According to local authorities, the incident occurred because a worker in the industrial Razi neighbourhood of the city was careless while doing welding works too close to an oil tank.
In July, a massive fire erupted at a parking lot in Kermanshah province in the west of Iran because a fuel tank exploded. Several people were injured in the incident, but no deaths were reported.
Several weeks before, a major explosion hit the Natanz nuclear site, the country's primary uranium processing compound, and a separate blast ripped through the Parchin military complex near the Iranian capital of Tehran.
