A mysterious explosion broke out at a state-owned factory or warehouse near Tehran on Monday evening, causing a large fire, Iranian media reports said.
It is not yet clear what the factory produced but it is located near Karaj, where a sabotage attack on a nuclear facility occurred last month.
One Iranian report said that the factory produces ballistic missile fuel.

Iran has been experiencing frequent power outages in recent days and reports blamed the explosion on the blackouts.
Further details of the incident or the extent of damage or injures are unknown at this time.
The explosion is the latest in a series of mysterious blasts and “accidents” in Iran, many attributed to Israel.
