Paris: A powerful explosion at a bakery rocked central Paris on Saturday, injuring at least 20 people, the police said. The blast, which took place at 9.10 a.m. (local time), was preceded by a fire that was apparently caused by a gas leak, the BBC reported citing preliminary reports. Cars were wrecked and other buildings were damaged by the blast on Rue de TrÃ©vise in the 9th Arrondissement.
“Ongoing, Paris firefighters are tackling a fire at a business establishment in Rue TrÃ©vise in the 9th arrondissement of north-central Paris that was followed by a strong explosion,” the police said in a statement. “Avoid the area and allow the passage to emergency vehicles,” it added.
