The explosion was heard for miles: A powerful explosion rocked Edinburgh

A large explosion occurred in a residential building in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is reported that two people were rescued. This was reported by Sky News. The explosion occurred the day before at about 22:30 local time (1:30 Moscow time on Saturday) and was so powerful that it could be heard at a considerable distance from the epicenter.

Witnesses reported the explosion was heard "miles away" and their homes were shaken by the force of the blast. Photos from the scene show the complete destruction of the building. Five fire and rescue vehicles were sent to the scene, but before they arrived, two people managed to escape from the building. The condition of the rescued people has not yet been determined.

The cause of the explosion remains unclear. An emergency services spokesman said reports had been received of a gas explosion. However, speculation about a possible terrorist attack is spreading on social networks. There is currently no official information confirming this version.
