Giza gas cylinder explosion injures 18

A gas cylinder explosion has injured 18 people at a property in the Abu-Rawash area in Kerdasa, north Giza.

The Public Prosecution office was notified to initiate investigations.

A team from the Public Prosecution Office moved to the property, accompanied by forensic laboratory experts, to conduct the necessary examination and determine that the fire was not started through foul play.

The inspection showed that parts of the property collapsed and the apartment furniture caught fire.

Eyewitnesses recounted the sound of a huge explosion. They rushed to the street, and saw flames erupting from the property.

They called the fire brigade, which came immediately to control the fire so that they could remove the injured and transfer them by ambulance to hospitals to receive the necessary treatment.

The civil protection forces rushed to the scene and sent seven fire engines until they were able to control the fire, after imposing a security cordon to surround the fire and prevent its spread.

The Giza Governor assigned the head of Giza Health Directorate to provide health care for the injured and follow up their health condition around the clock until recovery.
