At least 24 people have been killed and 271 injured in a series of massive underground gas blasts in Taiwan.
The fires are believed to have been caused by a leak of propene, often known as propylene, a petrochemical material not intended for public use.
Emergency services are still looking for people they believe are trapped under the rubble.
Residents who live along the pipelines have been asked to evacuate.
