Terrifying Explosion at a Fireworks Warehouse in Tenjo Colombia (VIDEOS)

You better stand back! Watch this tremendous explosion at a gunpowder plant! Starting gently, like a small firework, this fire turns into a huge destructive bang!

The incident occurred at 3:20 PM on Friday, as 30 employees of the Hofman fireworks warehouse were packing sparklers to be sold in December.

As described under the second video:

A fireworks factory (Polvoreria Hofman) in Tenjo, Colombia (about 20 miles from Bogota) has exploded after a fire broke out inside on September 27 2013. The factory housed over three tonnes of gunpowder, making it difficult for firefighters to battle the fire before the blast.
