The Hague, Netherlands: A suspected gas explosion in the Dutch city of The Hague caused a house to partially collapse, emergency services said Sunday, and local media reported two people have been pulled from the rubble.

Images showed the front of the building had been ripped off and debris was strewn over the street in a residential area of the city.

NOS television said firefighters had pulled two people from the wreckage but more might be trapped. Rescue work was being hampered because the building was unstable.

RTL News said that a blast of unknown origin had caused “houses to collapse”.

A story and photograph published by local news service Omroep West said a single building had collapsed after a blast and emergency services were at the scene.
