At least three people have been injured as the result of an explosion at a laundry in Algaida on Tuesday evening.

A gas leak is believed to have been responsible for the explosion. One of the three injured people is an employee. A woman, aged 45, was passing by the laundry at the time of the explosion; her 10-year-old daughter was with her. The car was badly damaged. Windows in neighbouring buildings were shattered by the blast that could be heard all across Algaida.

The street has been closed and residents have been evacuated as a precaution. Firefighters, ambulances, Guardia Civil and Algaida police are all at the scene.
