Five children were killed and another was injured Sunday after a blast at an abandoned firecracker factory in Yuncheng City in north China's Shanxi Province.

The six, all about 10 years old, were playing inside the factory near Wangjia Village of Nanzhang Township, Wanrong County, when the explosion occurred.

A small amount of expired explosives stored in the factory went off at about 1 p.m., killing five instantly and seriously seriously injuring the other, local sources said.

No information about the identity of the victims was available.

The cause of the accident was under further investigation.
