Civil Defense teams responded to a gas leak incident in an apartment in the Muqabalain area of the capital, Amman.

The Public Security Directorate's spokesperson said Thursday that specialized firefighting teams from the East Amman Civil Defense Directorate responded to a report of a gas leak from a domestic gas cylinder in an apartment in Muqabalin.

Upon arrival at the scene, the teams discovered that the leak had caused an explosion and a flashover in a closed room, resulting in one person sustaining various burns and leading to the collapse and cracking of some windows in the building.

Additionally, four vehicles parked next to the building suffered minor damages.

The spokesperson added that the Civil Defense teams took appropriate operational measures and provided the necessary first aid to the injured individual before transporting them to Al-Bashir Government Hospital for further medical treatment.
