The number of casualties was not immediately known following the blast in Sanmenxia city in Henan province, but official news agency Xinhua said "many people" were injured at the site of the explosion.

A massive explosion has been reported at China's Yima gas plant in Henan province, damaging buildings in a 3-kilometer radius.

The incident happened around 6 pm on Friday and the injured were sent to the hospital, according to local officials. More than 270 rescuers are on the scene searching for the missing people, Xinhua said, citing the emergency management ministry. The blast did not involve major hazardous source tanks, CCTV added.

China experiences frequent industrial accidents despite orders from the central government to improve safety at factories, power plants and mines. Authorities are investigating the cause of the blast.
