MAKHACHKALA, March 18 /TASS/. Seventeen people have been hurt in a fire followed by gas explosion at a gas-filling station in Kizlyar, the Republic of Dagestan in Russia’s North Caucasus, Ibragim Aliyev, the head doctor of the Kizlyar central city hospital, told TASS.
"Four people were taken to hospital. One man has serious brain injury. His condition is that of medium gravity," Aliyev said.
A fire followed by an explosion that occurred at a gas-filling station in Kizlyar when the fuel was being pumped into a gas storage facility, Dagestan’s Interior Ministry spokesman told TASS.
"It was established that a fire with subsequent explosion erupted when gas was being pumped from a road-truck into an underground gas storage reservoir.
