» more from Asia-Pacific News

A fireball ripped through the night sky above Tianjin, China, after a fire apparently caused a massive explosion at a flammable goods warehouse at the city's port.

The blast - one smaller explosion followed by a huge one - triggered a wave that could be felt miles away, people told the media, smashing apartment windows and damaging vehicles. People, some bleeding, were seen fleeing the area in videos posted on social media sites.

Here are the images captured of the devastating explosions and its aftermath.
