Ten people have died and several injured in eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Mau district after a house collapsed following a cylinder blast this morning.
Several people are worried to be trapped, according to the district authority. A cylinder collapsed inside a two-storey residence in Mau’s Mohammadabad region. So strong was the influence of the blast that the building came tumbling down.
People in the region told that they heard a noisy blast and flames emitted from the house soon after.
A recovering operation is on at the position of the fallen house to verify if people are caught in the debris. Ambulances and an enormous crowd accumulated at the site.
