(Video) Toxic Orange Cloud over Spanish town after Chemical Blast

A nasty Toxic orange cloud has formed over the Spanish town of Igualda after chemical blast at a local factory.

The explosion has sent nitric acid and ferric chloride in to the sky causing a bright orange cloud and forcing thousands of people to stay inside.

Three people were injured when products at a factory in the town of Igualda in north east Spain became mixed on Thursday.

More than 60,000 people in Igualda and four nearby towns were told to stay indoors with the windows shut.

Footage from locals captures the cloud, which included nitric acid and ferric chloride, causing the cloud’s bright colour.
