Multiple injuries after suspected gas explosion in Paris bakery | News

Paris police say several people have been injured in an explosion and fire at a bakery believed caused by a gas leak.

A Paris police spokesperson said firefighters were at the scene of the blast on Saturday morning at the bakery on Rue Trevise in the 9th arrondissement of north-central Paris.

She said several injuries have been reported to police but no deaths.

The spokesperson, who wasn’t authorised to be publicly named, provided no further details.

French television showed emergency vehicles surrounding the area. Images shared on social media showed the area around Rue De Montyon covered in debris with a fire raging in at least one building.

The explosion came amid heavy security in Paris and around France for yellow vest protests expected later Saturday.
