Nine employees were killed and 14 others injured when a fire broke out in a gas pipeline at Steel Authority of India Ltd.'s Bhilai steel plant in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh.

The company said Oct. 9 that the fire occurred during a scheduled maintenance job and has been controlled, and the 14 injured workers are being treated in the hospital.

Over 24 people were working in the area when the fire started, Live Mint reported, citing local police.
