Four people were killed in a cement plant blast Sunday in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, local authorities said.

A steam boiler of the cement plant in Baolongshan Town of Tongliao City exploded at around 7:40am on Sunday.

The cause of the blast is under investigation.

In an unrelated event, six people were killed when an explosion brought down a three-storey building in Beijing’s Chaoyang district on Monday.

It’s believed the explosion was caused by a gas leak, though an official explanation has not been released.

The building contained six apartments, though it’s not certain just how many people were in the building at the time of the explosion.
