Man, 64, injured in gas blast at Crumpsall house

  • 9-27-2011

A 64-year-old man is seriously ill in hospital after suffering burns in a gas explosion at a house in Manchester.

Fire crews were called to the incident at a semi-detached house on Brynorme Road, Crumpsall, at about 11:45 BST.

The blast led to debris from the building being scattered across the street and the house suffered significant structural damage.

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said the man was taken to hospital for treatment.

He had been led out of the property by neighbours before fire crews arrived, a spokesman said.

About 20 nearby houses were evacuated until the scene was confirmed as safe.

A joint investigation has been launched between specialist fire officers and a number of other agencies, the spokesman added.
