Hamburg (dpa / lno) - Two people were slightly injured in a deflagration in a laboratory in Hamburg-Lurup on Friday.

A chemical reaction had occurred in the factory.

A fire department spokesman said this to relevant media reports.

One person was injured by the bang, the other by broken glass.

An ambulance took them to a hospital.

More than 40 emergency services had made their way to the company because the fire brigade had initially assumed it would be larger.
