An explosion in an industrial park in central England killed five men Wednesday, police said.

Lincolnshire Police said there was an "explosion at an industrial unit" on the Broadfield Lane Industrial Estate in Boston, 120 miles (180 kilometers) north of London.

In addition to the dead, one man was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

The BBC said witnesses reported an explosion and saw smoke coming from one of the units in the area, which houses small manufacturers, auto repair shops and other businesses.

The cause of the blast was under investigation.
