3 dead, dozens in­jured in Paris bak­ery gas leak

The Beaufort Gazette (Sunday) - - News -

A pow­er­ful blast ap­par­ently caused by a gas leak blew apart a Paris bak­ery Sat­ur­day and dev­as­tated the street it was on, killing three peo­ple and in­jur­ing dozens as it blew out win­dows and over­turned nearby cars, French au­thor­i­ties said.

Fire­fight­ers pulled in­jured vic­tims out from bro­ken 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 Span­ish tourist were killed by the blast and about 10 of the 47 wounded were in crit­i­cal con­di­tion.
