An explosion at a chemical plant in China's Zhejiang Province left at least seven people injured on Monday. 

The incident is the latest in a series of blasts and accidents at chemical factories in China, coming two months after the deadly Tianjin blasts killed over 150 people. 

On 12 August, massive blasts rocked the port city of Tianjin after a shipment with explosive material caught fire.

Images of Monday's blast at the Zhejiang chemical plant were shared by China's CCTV News, and showed thick black smoke in the factory. 

Last month, another blast rocked a chemical plant in the Zhejiang province just days after a massive explosion in the industrial zone of Lijin, Dongying City of Shandong left five people dead on 31 August. 

In another chemical accident, seven workers at a paper mill were killed after they were exposed to poisonous gases in China's Hunan province.

On 18 September, a synthetic ammonia leak at a chemical plant in the Henan Province led hundreds to be hospitalised.
