Explosion in Iran – level 3

28-08-2018 07:00

Ten people died and five were injured in Iran last week when a water heater explosion caused a two-storey building to collapse.

Many Iranians use gas-consuming heaters with low safety and maintenance measures. The incident was one of the deadliest of its kind in Iran. Rescue operations continue at the location which is 885 kilometres northeast of the country’s capital of Tehran.

Difficult words: measures (a plan, steps to make sure something is safe).
