Two persons were injured when a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tank exploded in a townhouse unit in Pateros on April 17.
The Bureau of Fire Protection-Pateros posted that the gas explosion was reported at about 8:45 a.m. in SRI Compound, Bagong Calsada in Barangay Martirez del 96, Pateros.
The Pateros Downtown Fire and Rescue Volunteer, which responded to the incident, posted on Facebook that the gas explosion resulted in “two reported patient[s].”
Photos posted on Facebook showed a man with burn injuries while the roof of the townhouse unit was damaged due to the impact of the explosion.
BFP-Pateros reminded the public to “always close the gas tank valve after use, regularly check if there is a leak and if you smell gas, do not turn on any lightbulb or anything that can cause the gas leak to ignite. Instead, open your windows to release the gas.”
