KIEV, August 11 (Itar-Tass) - The death toll from a household gas explosion in the Ukrainian city of Lugansk has reached two. Seventeen more, including three children, received injuries, a Ukrainian television channel said on Sunday.
The explosion took place in a three-room apartment at the sixth floor of the 14-storey residential 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. The blast had damaged three apartments. The shock wave broke windows in neighbouring houses and overturned several cars.
Rescuers saved six persons from under the debris. They were hospitalized. Among them was an 11-year-old girl, who was in serious 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.
