Firefighters walk over…

Firefighters walk over crisscrossing hoses at a petrol station, close to a site where they extinguished a fire early yesterday afternoon in the built-up residential neighborhood of Pangrati in central Athens. Officials were investigating the causes of an underground explosion at a nearby dry-cleaning store – a blast that is suspecting of igniting the blaze. Initial reports said the explosion went off at the petrol distributor, which raised concerns about the safety of residents and the nearby apartments at Deliolanis Square. There were no reports of injuries.
