Stockholm (Reuters)-Early Tuesday morning, public service radio SR reported that about 25 people were taken to hospital after an explosion damaged a house in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Police said they had begun an investigation. A spokesperson for Sahlgrenska University Hospital said three women were seriously injured among those taken to the hospital.
Paramedics said they were working to evacuate people and put out the fire in the building.
“Several apartments and stairs will be affected. It is unknown at this time what caused the explosion,” said paramedics in the wider Gothenburg region.
An ambulance spokesman said hundreds of people had been evacuated near the explosion and fire.
The direct cause of the explosion and fire was unknown. The Nordic countries are a rival group that uses explosives and firearms to solve scores and have been fighting the proliferation of gang crimes in recent years.
