Ankara/Xinhua: A powerful explosion occurred at a fireworks factory in Turkey's northwestern Sakarya province on Friday, local media reported.

Following several massive blasts, smaller explosions have been continuing at the factory located at the Hendek district, the NTV broadcaster said.

A video aired by the broadcaster showed that flames and clouds of dense smoke have been pouring into the sky.

Ekrem Yuce, Sakarya mayor, said at a televised speech that around 200 workers have been working at the factory.

It was however, not immediately clear as to what caused the accident or how many casualties were there.
