 A boiler explosion at a thermal power plant in Tamil Nadu's Cuddalore district has killed four people and injured 13 others.

 The blast took place at NLC India Limited's power plant in Cuddalore, about 180 km from Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu.

 An official at the power plant said, "The boiler was not turned on. We are investigating the incident."  This is the second explosion of a power plant in two months.  Earlier in May, a boiler explosion killed six workers, including both regular and contractor workers.  The company generated 3,940 megawatts of electricity, compared to 1,460 megawatts at the site of the explosion.

 Officials said the injured were rushed to hospital.
