Beijing: At least three persons were killed on Saturday after an explosion believed to have been caused by a gas leak ripped through a residential building in northeast China's Liaoning Province.

Part of the building collapsed after the blast at around 5 AM in Huludao City, according to a statement from the city publicity office. One person died at the scene while two succumbed to their wounds in hospital.

Eight residents were rescued and three passers-by were injured and remain in hospital. One person is still trapped under the rubble. "I thought it was earthquake," said a resident who was caught in the blast. "I rushed out of the building immediately and found smoke pouring from the building," a survivor was quoted as saying by the state-run Xinhua news agency.

The explosion is believed to have been caused by a gas leak. A similar explosion in Huludao City on May 31 had left two dead and 11 injured.
