Six people have been injured, one of them serious, after the explosion on the ground floor of a 10-story building in Piazzale Libia, in Milan, which is believed to have been a gas leak, the Fire Department reported.

The loud explosion occurred around 7 this morning and at least three floors of the building were affected, reported the media,

Yet it is not clear whether the explosion occurred in the basement of the building or on the ground floor, where there is a dental office and a small apartment.

At the moment there have been six wounded, one of them seriously that had to be rescued from inside the building by firefighters and has significant burns.

The first hypothesis is that it is a gas leak from one of the kitchens, although it is not yet known from where, so the gas has been cut in the entire area and the building has been evacuated, explained Maurizio Pendini, director of the Milan Fire Department.

For the moment two tenants missing, but it is not excluded that they were not in the nine-story building.

“We are finishing the search for the disappeared to eliminate doubts, but we don’t think there are more people inside. The explosion was very serious, we feared the worst, “Pendini added.
