    Major fire breaks out after explosion in chemical factory in Palghar

    Mumbai: A major fire broke out at a pharmaceutical factory in Tarapur area of Palghar on Thursday evening. At least one person was killed and several others were injured after the fire spread to three other plants located near the pharmaceutical factory.
