QUEBEC — Two people were killed as an explosion loud enough to be heard for kilometres ripped through an industrial plant Thursday, triggering a fire that produced a thick, dark cloud of toxic smoke.

The blast and fire sent 19 other people to hospital, some with severe burns. The two victims were found in the rubble of the decimated processing plant.
