A massive explosion rocked an industrial yard for chemical companies in the western German city of Leverkusen on Tuesday, sending a column of black smoke into the air. Several people were injured, and five remain missing as local authorities urge residents to shelter indoors.

According to Reuters, the explosion occurred around 0940 local time, causing a massive fire at a fuel depot at Chempark. The industrial park for chemicals is home to companies such as Bayer and Lanxess. 

Currenta, the company operating Chempark, said that several employees were injured, at least two of them severely, and that five people remain missing.

Chempark tweeted, "for a previously unknown cause, there was an explosion in the Chempark Leverkusen. Plant fire brigade and air test vehicle in action. Residents, please go to closed rooms and keep doors and windows closed." 

Residents felt the blast, with some saying the explosion rattled their homes. Some uploaded dramatic footage of the incident:

There's still no official word on what disruptions this incident may have caused for the companies operating in Chempark.
