After an explosion in a residential building in Stuttgart, parts of the building collapsed. Four people, including two children, were injured on Monday morning, as a spokesman for the fire brigade announced. An 85-Year-old is missing. Presumably, a gas explosion is the reason for the fire.

During the night, part of the building was completely on fire. The surrounding houses were partially evacuated. The residents were able to return to their homes after some time.

Cars standing in front of the house had been damaged, a vehicle was completely burned out, said the fire brigade spokesman. In part, the windows of the buildings in the neighborhood were cracked. The fire brigade was on site with up to 100 responders.
