One person dead, 33 injured after explosions at Romanian gas station

One person was killed and 33 others were injured in Crevedia, near Bucharest, on Saturday due to two explosions at a liquefied petroleum gas station. The first explosion led to the fire spreading to two tanks and a nearby house, resulting in evacuations within a 300-meter radius and road traffic blockage, as reported by the agency for emergency situations (IGSU). The fire was extinguished with the help of 25 fire engines, and four individuals with severe burns were intubated, according to the health ministry.

Deputy Interior Minister Raed Arafat, responsible for the emergency response unit, informed reporters that a second explosion occurred at the LPG station on Saturday evening, injuring 26 firefighters. Arafat also mentioned that the fire had not been completely extinguished, and there was a risk of further explosions due to a third tank at the site.
