Government health system spokesman Rosendo Gaytan says the 35-year-old employee of the factory Dulces Blueberry in Ciudad Juarez died Tuesday at a hospital in the city of Guadalajara, where he was transferred to be treated for third-degree burns.

The blast Thursday on the second floor of the factory caused the floor to collapse, injuring people working downstairs. The cause is still unknown.
