Paris street is dev­as­tated by gas blast; 3 dead

Tampa Bay Times - - Nation & World -

A pow­er­ful ex­plo­sion ap­par­ently caused by a gas leak blew apart a Paris bak­ery and dev­as­tated the street it was on, killing three peo­ple and in­jur­ing dozens. Wit­nesses de­scribed the ex­plo­sion Satur­day morn­ing as deaf­en­ing. It blew out win­dows and over turned nearby cars. Fire­fight­ers pulled in­jured vic­tims out from win­dows and evac­u­ated res­i­dents and tourists as a fire raged and smoke bil­lowed over Rue de Tre­vise in north-cen­tral Paris. The French In­te­rior Min­istry said two fire­fight­ers and a fe­male Span­ish tourist were killed by the blast and about 10 of the 47 wounded were in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.
