Kuwait TV reported that an Indian laborer was injured in a fire at a chemical plant in Kuwait's oil rich southern region that was the result of a blast.

The fire department said that the blaze was apparently caused by chemicals exploding at the plant in Mina Abdullah near Kuwait's second largest oil refinery.

A security source said that one Indian worker suffered minor burn injuries in the blaze, but he did not mention an explosion. The plant is run by the privately owned United Petroleum Projects Company, a Kuwaiti company that deals with oil products.
