MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The death toll from a household gas explosion in a residential house in the Siberian city of Tomsk has risen to two, a spokesman for the regional emergencies department told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The dead body of another victim was found when fire fighters were putting out the fire that followed the explosion,” the spokesman said.
