According to a State Department spokesperson who talked, the State Department is not aware of any Americans who were hurt or killed in the explosion.

According to the spokeswoman, the State Department is “in communication with local authorities” while they look into what happened.

The official continued, “The United States sends our sympathy to those affected by the explosion.

Amid the afternoon’s dense haze, the explosion broke nearby windows and erupted nearby.

In a rush to the scene, hundreds of firefighters and police officers were joined by fleeing bystanders. Completely tumbling down was the building’s facade.

As search and rescue personnel combed through the debris, fire department crews were able to put out the fire.

According to the Paris prosecutor, buildings adjacent have been evacuated because of worries about their structural integrity in the wake of the explosion. A suspected gas leak may have been the cause, according to early investigation, police officials informed reporters, though the investigation is still ongoing.
