One dead, 24 hurt in Philippines fireworks blaze

A blaze that ripped through a group of fireworks shops in the Philippines Wednesday killed a woman with another person missing and 24 others hurt, officials said. The fire set off a series of explosions at a strip of shops that overturned a truck and badly damaged three other vehicles on a major road in Bocaue, a town about 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Manila. "I was hurled to the back of the shop by the force of the explosion," Mel Berbosa de Castro, 50, her lip still bleeding and her back hurting from the blast, told AFP from her shop across the street.
