South Korean fire officials say an explosion inside a car wash has killed two drivers and an employee at a gas station in a city south of Seoul.
Firefighter Jang In-su says that Saturday's blast appears to have been caused by a liquefied petroleum gas leak. Another fire official said four people were also injured in the blast. He declined to be named because fire investigators were still trying to ascertain details.
Neither official could immediately say whether LPG gas had leaked from underground tanks at the gas station in Suwon city.
Car washes are commonly found attached to gas stations in South Korea.
