PETALING JAYA, April 5 — An explosion possibly caused by gas cylinders at the Chili’s restaurant was heard at the Mid Valley shopping centre on Jalan Klang Lama, at 10am today. The Fire and Rescue Department said eight people were injured during the collapse of the ceiling of the front and kitchen at Chili’s on the ground floor, as well as the ceiling of the kitchen at fast food restaurant McDonald’s on the lower ground floor.
Among the victims of six men and two women, three of the men suffered burns while the rest had light injuries. The Fire and Rescue Department confirmed there was a gas leak from a stove.
According to witnesses, the mall was evacuated after an explosion was heard. The hazardous material unit from the Fire and Rescue Department arrived at the popular shopping centre.
“Investigations are underway to determine if the ceiling collapse was caused by gas cylinders explosions,” said a spokesman from the Fire and Rescue Department.
Mid Valley Megamall said it was working with the authorities and has shut all the gas systems in the shopping centre until further notice. “The mall will remain open to visitors and we will keep you updated as and when we have more information,” Mid Valley Megamall said in a brief statement.
The shopping centre also said the “minor” explosions at two eateries happened during reinstatement work to its liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) system following maintenance works.
Mid Valley Megamall said those injured were its maintenance staff, LPG contractor and tenant staff, and that there were no injuries to the public.
