An explosion in the nine-storey apartment building in Kharkiv has occurred today, assistant chief of the Emergencies Ministry Territorial Administration in Kharkiv region Ihor Lupandin told ForUm correspondent.

According to him, the explosion occurred around 11 a.m. on the third floor of the building.
Preliminary cause is a gas explosion. "Four people sought for medical assistance, one person was hospitalized. The victims have burns. But the most important thing is that nobody was killed. However, there is a blockage on the third floor. The owner of the flat leased it, so it is not known whether there are people there," Lupandin said.

According to Lupandin, immediately after the explosion, the Emergencies Ministry officers evacuated about fifty residents of the house. "The building itself is badly damaged - ceiling collapsed from the fifth to the second floor, glasses were broken," he said.
