Aerial view of Tianjin warehouse site one month after blasts

The core area of a deadly explosion in China’s northern city of Tianjin has been cleaned up, about one month after the tragedy occurred.

Two blasts ripped through a warehouse on Aug. 12 in Tianjin Port, where large amounts of toxic chemicals were stored.

165 people have been killed, including 99 firefighters and 11 police officers. Eight people remain unaccounted for.

In the past weeks, thousands of burned cars and containers, as well as over 3,600 trucks of metal waste, have been removed from the site.

1,100 tons of hazardous goods have been identified and disposed.

As cleaning of the warehouse ruins is completed, authorities say, a park will be built on the site.
