A woman was found dead under debris after a household gas explosion struck a three-storey residential building in the city of Krasnoyarsk on Thursday.

12 more people were evacuated from the site, according to Deputy Head of Krasnoyarsk region's Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) department Aleksey Bogdanov. Bottled gas exploded during the night, leaving those injured under debris in freezing conditions.

"6 flats are destroyed, 10 more are partly damaged," Bogdanov added. The exact number of residents of the building still remains unknown.

On December 31, 2018, an entire section of a 10-storey tower block in Russia's Magnitogorsk collapsed, claiming the lives of 39 people. According to the Russian Investigative Committee, a gas blast caused the building to collapse.
