As many as nine people were injured after a gas cylinder explosion in Dombivli on Wednesday evening. No casualties have been reported, said Kalyan fire officials. The fire official said that the incident took place at Siddhi Chinese stall in the Dattnagar area, Tandan Road, Dombivli on Wednesday at about 5:30.

According to locals, the injured rushed to a Chinese stall to douse the fire when fire caught in the Chinese stall. But, the blaze erupted across the stall and later blaze spreading near a gas cylinder, which is used by the Chinese owner and led to an explosion resulting in nine people suffering burn injuries. A bystander rushed to the spot and called the local police as well as the fire station about the incident. They were all sent to a nearby hospital for medical treatment where they were all being treated.

According to fire officials, in the Chinese stall, there were neither any safety precautions nor appropriate permission from the fire department. There was serious concern for the safety and protection of nearby residents who resided nearby the Chinese stall.
