MOSCOW, April 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Two people presumably elderly pensioners may be trapped under debris of a residential house fallen in a domestic gas blast in Russian Siberia’s Omsk region, the Russian Investigative Committee said on Sunday.
It was preliminarily found that a 12-flat residential house collapsed partially in the domestic gas blast that triggered a fire at around 6.30am Moscow time (2.30am GMT) on the second floor of the apartment block in settlement Konezavodsky in Maryanovka District in Omsk Region, the country’s Investigative Committee said.
Three people died and nine other people were injured in the domestic gas blast, the committee said. Six adults and three children born in 2011, 2005 and 2007 were taken to hospital.
“A 34-year-old man was found dead under the debris of fallen residential house and two women were found dead there later. Other two people presumably elderly pensioners may be trapped under the debris,” the committee said.
A criminal case was opened for causing death through negligence.
Fire extinguishing and debris removal continue. A team of detectives are working at the blast site. The causes for the domestic gas blast are being investigated, the Russian Investigative Committee said.
