It is attributed to a concentration of methane and a possible spark of the PPC cables passing through the point
The hassle caused to the pedestrians and shopkeepers of Kriezotou Street in Chalkis the deafening noise that sounded like a bomb blast this morning, as tvstar.gr conveys.
According to the report, the explosion occurred in a PPC pit in front of a clothing store, whose employee stood in the doorway and a few seconds before the explosion took three steps back when suddenly saw the shaft and the stones ejecting into the air . . She herself suffered from the shock she was unable to get out of her position and run to protect herself.
She said that a strange smell emerged from the place in the morning. However, the explosion is not related to any damage to DEMP, but to the high concentration of gases and, in particular, the methane of neighboring fossils. A spark that can be thrown out of the PPC cables that pass through it was enough to cause damage.
The event is investigated to determine precisely the causes of the explosion.
