12 Injured in Paris bakery gas explosion
A powerful explosion and fire allegedly caused by gas leak at a Paris bakery on Saturday, 12 January, injured 12 people, blasted out windows and overturned cars, police said. The condition of five people has been declared critical. Firefighters pulled injured victims out of windows and evacuated residents as smoke billowed out of the building on Rue de Trevise in the 9th arrondissement of north-central Paris. A Paris police spokeswoman said several injuries have been reported to police but no deaths were reported so far. The spokeswoman, who wasn't authorised to be publicly named, provided no further details. Silver-helmeted firefighters and red firetrucks filled the street and inspected adjoining courtyards. Debris from a burned car and broken glass littered the pavement. A vehicle from gas company GRDF was stationed nearby. The explosion came amid heavy security in Paris and around France for yellow vest protests expected later on Saturday, 12 January. Photo Courtesy: Google.
