Following the incident, the administration rushed police and firefighters to the spot to carry out rescue work.

Personnel of the fire brigade and National Disaster Response Force recovered the bodies including that of two women.

"A LPG cylinder exploded on the ground floor of a two-storey building. So it is unlikely that the buildings collapsed due to blast", Reddy later added.

Three fire-fighters clearing debris were injured when a wall fell on them. "It is only after an investigation is conducted that we can tell if the cylinder explosion caused the building to collapse", the minister said.
