KIEV, August 11 (Itar-Tass) - One person died and six more, including two children, were injured in a household gas explosion at a multi-storey residential house in the Ukrainian city of Lugansk, a spokesman for the regional emergencies authorities said on Sunday.
According to the spokesman, the explosion took place in a three-room apartment at the sixth floor of the 14-storey building. “The explosion ruined floor decks between the sixth and the sevenths, and the sixths and the fifths floors and managed the building’s face wall,” he noted.
Local television said the blast had damaged three apartments. “The shock wave broke windows in neighbouring houses and overturned several cars,” eyewitnesses were quoted as saying. “The blast also broke windows in a tram that happened to pass by the house.”
In the mean time, Ukraine’s television channel 5 said the number of those hurt in the accident had reached 14, of whom there were three children. An 11-year-old girl was said to be in grave condition.
According to preliminary data, the explosion was caused by a malfunction of an apartment heater. All residents of the ill-fortune building were evacuated.
