We regret to pass on that two Firefighters were killed in the Line Of Duty and 47 people were injured in an explosion and fire caused by a gas leak at a Paris bakery today. Firefighters were already on scene investigating the gas leak when the explosion occurred.
The latest report is that 10 people were in critical condition and 37 others less seriously injured. One Firefighter was reported to be trapped and buried under the rubble for 2.5 hours.
More to follow. Our condolences to all those affected. R.I.P.
