Paris street is devastated by gas blast; 3 dead
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.
