A massive blast has been reported in the city of Tianjin in northern China late on Wednesday. Photos and videos posted on social media showed a huge mushroom cloud lighting up the night sky.

Images released by state media showed evacuated people running in the streets. There have yet been no official reports on deaths and casualties.

The blast occurred at about 11:30 pm local time (3:30 pm GMT), the Xinhua news agency reported.

The cause of the explosion is not yet known, but some reports from local media said that a flammable cargo shipment exploded at port, setting off a chain reaction.

The blast wave shattered windows in some residential areas, witnesses say.

Tianjin is a major port city southeast of Beijing with population of more than 7.5 million people.
