A massive explosion at a fireworks market near Mexico City killed at least 31 people and injured scores of others on Tuesday.
The blast occurred at the San Pablito marketplace ― about 20 miles outside Mexico City in the town of Tultepec ― where people were buying fireworks for Christmas celebrations.
The cause of the incident is still unclear, and Mexican authorities have opened an investigation into the blast. It is the third time a large explosion has hit the market in a little over 10 years, according to Reuters.
The blast tore through hundreds of stalls and left wreckage strewn across the area. Images of the aftermath show people attempting to help victims and putting out subsequent fires caused by the explosion.
