Explosion at Empire Gallery Shopping Mall

I was still awake when the explosion happened at the Subang Jaya Empire Gallery shopping mall. Four people were injured while more than 300 people rescued and evacuated when an explosion occurred at the lower ground floor of the Empire Gallery shopping mall in Subang which houses the food court here early Wednesday about 3.50am, which was heard from as far away as Bangsar.

Firemen from the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department also rescued four other people who were trapped at the lower ground floor of the complex.

The injured, including a Nepali security guard and a local, who sustained cuts caused by falling shattered glass, were sent to the hospital for treatment.

In the 3.45am gas-piping explosion, the blast damaged two other floors in the complex. It also caused damages to the adjoining office block and studio apartment.

Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department station chief Mohd Khairi Daud said firemen from Subang Jaya were assisted by their colleagues from PJ and surrounding areas in evacuating the hotel guests, numbering more than 300 people.

Firemen are now checking the structure of the building to ensure its safety.

I heard quite some reason of the explosion, but let's hope that it's is not something related to government or some terrorist stuff.
