At least three people are dead and another six are injured following an explosion at a building belonging to the Catholic Church in Madrid.
The explosion, which occurred in Calle Toledo, is believed to have been caused by a gas leak according to an initial investigation.
Mayor Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida stated, “The most likely hypothesis is a gas leak, there was a person working on the boiler,”.
Two of the injured people were transferred to hospital with one in serious condition with a head injury.
The explosion completely destroyed the top five floors of the building, which provided residential training for priests and gave meals to homeless people.
