Two firefighters and a tourist were killed and at least three dozen people injured, about a third of them seriously, by an explosion thought to be caused by a gas leak in Paris on Saturday. The firefighters were on the scene responding to the leak when the explosion occurred in a bakery. The blast damaged a number of nearby storefronts, flipped at least one car, and filled the street with broken glass. "I was sleeping and woke up by the blast wave," said a neighbor named Claire Sallavuard. "All the windows in the apartment exploded, doors were blown off their hinges."
