Three people were dead, including a 3-year-old child, after a Saturday blast in Longgang District blew the roof off a garment shop before the walls collapsed.

According to employees at a nearby fuel station, there was a fire before the explosion.

The destroyed garment accessory shop was near Jixiang Metro Station on Longgang Boulevard in Longgang District.

The blast happened at around 1:15 p.m. and was followed by a fire, which was extinguished after 15 minutes.

It also started a fire in a nearby car maintenance shop.

Two cars parked in front of the shop were damaged by the explosion and fire, too.

According to a statement issued by the Longgang District Government, the victims, surnamed Liu, 51, and Yuan, 42, respectively, were spouses. And the child victim was their grandson.

A man who escaped from the back window of the shop and was slightly injured was the couple’s son and the child was his nephew.

The fire was probably caused by paints, according to a preliminary report.

The case is still under investigation.
