Eight injured in explosion and fire at Geneva stables
Three people are seriously injured after an explosion and fire in a riding centre in Geneva. They were helicoptered to the Geneva cantonal hospital and the specialized burns unit at the Lausanne hospital.
Five more received treatment at the scene.
A loud bang was heard at the stables in Laconnex at around 10pm last night – followed by a fire.
The explosion seemed to come from a tank. Firefighters managed to put out the blaze before the stables suffered serious damage. No animals were hurt.
An investigation is now under way.
