IVANOVO, November 6. /TASS/. The second case of gas explosion in a residential building in two months has taken away six human lives as household gas exploded in a two-storey dwelling-house in the city of Ivanovo, some 300 km to the northeast of Moscow. Bodies of six people were found under the rubble of the house, some sections of which collapsed in the early hours of Monday. One of the victims was a four-year-old child. Four more people with wounds of varying severity were taken to hospital.
The first report on the accident in a two-story residential building that consists of three sections came at 04:15. The explosion destroyed four apartments. People living in the house were evacuated to relatives or a local hotel.
The inquiry into the accident opened by the regional bureau of Russia's Investigations Committee has been submitted to the central office under the instruction of the head of Russia’s Investigative Committee’s Aleksander Bastrykin, its spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko told TASS.
A representative of Russia’s Investigative Committee said that the explosion had been caused by a gas leak. "The preliminary investigation of the case and investigatory actions suggest that a domestic gas leak is the main version now," the source said.
