Local Another gas cylinder explosion, in Nikaweratiya

An explosion believed to have been caused by a gas leak occurred in a house at Kandegedera in Nikaweratiya this morning (26).

Police say the house was extensively damaged by the ensuing fire, the incident caused no casualties, as it was unoccupied at the time.

The quality of domestic gas in the market has come into question after several gas cylinder explosions were reported in various parts of Sri Lanka within this month. 

Most recent occurrences took place at a restaurant belonging to a fast food chain at Racecourse Promenade in Colombo and in a house at Pannipitiya.
