Death toll from Pemex pipeline explosion rises to 27 in San Martin Texmelucan Mexico RAW VIDEO


_____________________________________________________________________________

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 19 (Xinhua) -- The death toll of an oil pipeline explosion in central Mexico rose to 27 with 52 injuries, state-run energy giant Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) said in a statement on Sunday.

Earlier on Sunday, an official from the Puebla state government told Xinhua by telephone that the explosion took place after criminals tapping two oil pipelines running through Puebla town San Martin Texmelucan lost control of oil flow.

The Puebla official said that 33 homes were completely destroyed by the explosion and 32 more were seriously damaged. Pemex said that a total of 115 houses had been affected. Regional authorities are now moving 5,000 residents of the town to the Angeles Blancos emergency shelter and cleanup work is under way. Pemex said that the incident began at 5.50 a.m. local time. The fire had been put out by 10 a.m. local time. Pemex investigators are at the scene seeking the cause of the explosion. The area is now being guarded by 125 soldiers, it added.

Valentin Meneses, who heads Puebla's Interior Ministry, told media that 10 of the dead are from one family, whose home was close to the explosion site. He is at the scene of the incident. The nation's Interior Minister Francisco Blake Mora is traveling to San Martin. The two are set to give a joint press conference later on Sunday.

More than 25 vehicles were burned and windows were smashed in a three-kilometer radius of the explosion site, Alberto Perez, who mans the state's emergency service phone lines, told local media. The explosion took place close to San Martin Texmelucan, where Pemex owns a large chemical plant.
