A gas pipeline operated by China National Petroleum Corp exploded on Sunday night in Guizhou Province in southwest China, injuring 24 people, with three in critical condition. The blast occurred in the Shazi District of Qianxinan city in Guizhou Province, Xinhua reported. No deaths have been reported.

The fire was out as of 2:30 a.m. on Monday, the municipal government of Qianxinan Buyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture said on its official Weibo account. The pipeline is an extension of a Myanmar-China gas line that delivers natural gas from Kyaukpyu on Myanmar’s coast to southwest China.
