At least two people died and 56 were injured after two blasts occurred at a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) station north of Romania’s capital Bucharest.
Romanian authorities said that the injured included 39 firefighters who went to the scene following the first explosion. Shortly after, a second blast rocked the station in Crevedia.
Several people are in critical condition with severe burns, the authorities said.
Romania has requested assistance through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism to treat 18 burn patients, European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarcic said, adding that Austria, Germany and Norway offered help.
