zhuhai 01A gas explosion ripped through a hotel in Zhuhai on Friday, but miraculously left only three people injured.

The blast happened at about 9 am in a crowded neighbourhood, according to a statement by the public security bureau in the city's Doumen district.

zhuhai 02Video footage shot from a car showed onlookers watching smoke lick the outside of the building before the loud explosion and fireball sent witnesses scampering for cover.

About 55 firefighters were deployed and the fire was put out within an hour. Of the three people injured, two had minor injuries.

All occupants in the damaged buildings- which included shops and homes - were taken to safety and officials were investigating the cause of the blast, the local public security bureau said.

珠海,群众围观时突然爆炸!

9月11日上午9时,珠海市消防救援支队指挥中心接到报警:珠海市斗门区白藤二路一商住路发生爆炸,市消防救援支队调派全勤指挥部及6个队站,共19辆消防车、95名指战员前往处置。现场过火面积约150平方米,共营救遇险群众9人。事故造成3名群众受伤。截至10点,现场明火已扑灭。

上午9时8分左右发生的爆炸,是威力最大的一次,周边居民表示,爆炸大大小小共发生过六次。多位居民曾看到,当时从5楼飞出着火的不明物体,掉落到1楼,而一楼的商铺为汽修店、电瓶车店和烧烤店等,易燃易爆物质多,接连引发爆炸。

事发附近居民表示,事故起因或与五楼阿婆烧粥时不慎睡着,从而引发的煤气泄漏有关。当时,从窗户飞出的煤气罐掉至一楼汽修店附近,汽修店大量机油引发起火事故。汽修店附近的烧烤店、变压器设施、电瓶车店接连失火,从而引发系列爆炸。据现场人员回忆,爆炸共计发生6次,其中2到3次程度较为严重。
