Freon gas leak a likely cause in deadly explosion at fast-food chain, says fire department
A leak of Freon gas is thought to be the most likely explanation of the deadly gas explosion at a fast-food chain in central Athens on Thursday (01/12/2016) that killed one woman and injured five more people, the investigative team of the fire department said.
According to the officials, the accident happened while the refrigerator technician was working at the basemen of the store where all the fridges are stored. They also said the store didn’t use natural gas or propane.
However a safe conclusion as to what caused the explosion will only be determined after the investigation is concluded, they added.
