Building Collapses in Poland – level 2

09-03-2018 07:00

In Poland, an apartment building collapsed, and four people died and 24 people were injured. Twenty-four groups of firefighters combed through the rubble to find survivors. One firefighter said that dogs and a search and rescue group were helping the firefighters.

The building collapsed after an explosion. The cause of the explosion is unknown, but it could be from gas. Everybody had to evacuate the building.

Difficult words: comb (look carefully through something), rubble (small pieces of a building), search and rescue group (people who come to places to find and save people) evacuate (leave to be safe).
