It is not clear how the explosion arose in a small house in the center of the city of Bordeaux. A preliminary investigation shows that this would be a gas explosion, but that has not yet been confirmed. According to the fire department, the garage and the garage of two adjacent buildings were destroyed. “The firefighters have found several gas cylinders, but we don’t know if it has anything to do with that,” it sounded at Regaz, which is responsible for supplying gas.
Several windows from commercial premises in the area were killed by the explosion. “Our fear is that there are many victims with severe injuries and that the surrounding buildings may collapse as a result of the explosion,” it sounded to the fire department.
