The explosion occurred in the tunnel of a grain warehouse, in the district of Boa Esperança do Norte, 140 kilometers from Sorriso. A team from the Fire Department went to the scene this afternoon and added that, upon receiving the call, “there was a lot of smoke coming out of” the tunnel and confirmed that an employee had died. His identity is being confirmed and he would have been around 50 years old.

Employees were cleaning the tunnel when the explosion occurred. According to the PM, the noise was heard in much of the district. “We heard a big explosion and later we were informed that there would have been this accident”, explained soldier Francisco Lima.

A team from the Official Forensics and Technical Identification is going to the district for forensic analysis and to ascertain the circumstances of the accident will be investigated.

In Novo Mundo (260 km from Sinop), about two weeks ago, two workers died buried in the construction of a silo.
