A munitions research facilty in the Central Russian city of Dzerzhinsk experienced massive multiple explosions today; this was the third explosive accident at the location during the past year.

“A big explosion roared, my ears popped and then sirens went off. In a minute, there was another blast, windows shattered, and a column of smoke rose, and there was fire,” reported one witness according to RT.

The facilities damaged in the blast are part of Russia’s scientific and research institute ‘Kristall’. It specializes in scientific and technological support for work related to the production of explosive materials and devises its safety measures, wrote RT.

This is the third blast suffered by the TNT-maker over the past year. Last August, five workers were killed in an explosion at the site, and in April an explosion destroyed a one-story building but caused no injuries.
