A fire at an arms factory in Venezuela triggered a series of explosions that killed one person and injured three others, Aragua state governor Rafael Isea said in comments carried on state television.

Authorities in the city of Maracay began evacuating a 5- square-kilometer (3-square-mile) area around the Compania Anonima Venezolana de Industrias Militares, or CAVIM, a state- run weapons factory, and restricted traffic on a nearby freeway after the fire began at about 4:45 a.m. local time, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Hopefully no more people are harmed.  It will be interesting to hear how Venezuela's dictator portrays the incident; industrial accident, opposition terrorists, or espionage from... Oh, I'm sure we'll share the blame, if he runs in that direction  Grin

Granted, I wouldn't put much faith in the official government explanation to begin with.

Some website was trying to spread the rumor that Hugo had fled the nation, officially abandoning his post.

We could only wish that was true.
