One worker died and three others were wounded in an explosion that occurred in a shipping yard in Istanbul's Tuzla district, Hürriyet said.
The working conditions in shipyards in Tuzla have raised eyebrows recently as tens of workers have been killed in separate accidents.
Dogan News Agency (DHA) said the explosion occurred in a ship that was under going maintenance works, and was caused by a gas bottle.
Some TV channels gave the number of wounded as four, saying one of them is in critical condition.
