Two people were rushed to the hospital with serious injuries sustained by a sudden burst of flame from a machine on the Chemelot industrial site in Geleen on Wednesday, ANP reports.

The burst of flame came from a furnace, Chemelot said on Wednesday. It resulted in a so-called naphtha cracker - where petroleum products are made workable - catching fire. The fire was quickly brought under control and extinguished. 

The cause of the fire is still unclear. The Social Affairs and Employment Inspectorate, formerly the Labor Inspectorate, is investigating.
