A bang and a cloud of black smoke. This Wednesday, June 21, 2023, at 4:55 p.m. French time, an explosion occurred on rue Saint-Jacques, in the 5th arrondissement of Paris.

An investigation was opened for involuntary injuries. At least seven people were seriously injured and in “absolute emergency”, and nine others more slightly affected in the fire and collapse of a building in the 5th arrondissement of Paris on Wednesday.

Two buildings engulfed in flames collapsed on Wednesday in the heart of Paris, where witnesses reported an explosion and at least seven people were injured in an absolute emergency, according to official sources and AFP journalists on the scene.

The “violent” fire that broke out after an explosion in a building in the 5th arrondissement of Paris on Wednesday has now been “contained”, said Paris Police Prefect Laurent Nuñez, adding that a “search is still underway under the rubble” for possible victims. Firefighters have “prevented the fire from spreading to two adjoining buildings which were seriously destabilized by the explosion” and “have been evacuated”, added the police prefect, who was speaking to the press at the scene of the blaze.
