Four persons at a chemical manufacturing unit in Tarapur Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) area suffered burn injuries on Monday afternoon when the reactor they were repairing burst open, the police said.
According to the police, the four men were welding a reactor in Sunrise Chemical Equipments, located in the J 188 Industrial Estate in Tarapur MIDC, when a portion of the old welding gave way and released hot air and oil onto them.

"The men have suffered superficial burn injuries (15-20%) to the face and hands due to the hot oil spilling onto them," said Dr. J.J. Wala, Casualty Medical Officer, Sanjivani Hospital.
