A massive gas explosion in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, killed at least three people and injured nearly 300 others.
Initial reports indicated the blast was caused by a lorry carrying gas cylinders.
“The government initially said the blast happened at a gas plant where workers were refilling gas cylinders, but the authorities later clarified that a truck had exploded in a parking yard,” BBC reports.
The explosion reportedly occurred around 11:30 p.m. local time in Nairobi’s Embakasi district.
Houses, businesses, and cars sustained damage from the blast.

An investigation has started and Kenya’s deputy president has said those responsible will be held accountable.
A child was among those who died, according Embakasi police chief Wesley Kimeto, who added that the death toll could rise.
Some 271 people were taken to hospital, according to the authorities, including at least 25 children.
Nairobi county Governor Sakaja Johnson said many of these people had been treated and sent home, but at least 39 have been sent to other facilities – some with critical injuries.
A further 27 people were treated on site for non-life-threatening injuries.

More from ABC News:
Kenya Police Service Deputy Inspector General Douglas Kanja visited the site Friday morning and a multi-agency team remains on scene, according to police.
The Kenya Red Cross said in a statement Friday that its staff were currently at the site “providing first aid and psychosocial support services to those affected.” The organization also said it had set up a “tracing desk” and was assisting with search and rescue efforts. So far, 21 children who were separated from their families in the aftermath of the explosion have been reunited with their parents, according to the Kenya Red Cross.
Meanwhile, Nairobi City County has waived the hospital bills for all victims and begun distributing essential food and non-food items to the affected families, according to a statement from Kenyan government spokesperson Isaac Mwaura.
The incident remains under investigation and the government is calling on people to donate blood and items to support the victims, Mwaura said.
The explosion apparently occurred at an illegal liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) plant. Kenya’s Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) confirmed that it had rejected applications for construction permits for an LPG storage and filling plant at the site in 2023.
The main reason for the rejection was failure of the designs to meet the safety distances stipulated in the Kenya Standard,” the agency said in a statement Friday. “EPRA noted the high population density around the proposed site and the applicant was requested to submit a Qualitative Risk Assessment clearly indicating the radiation blast profiles in the unfortunate case of an explosion like the one that happened yesterday.”
STUNNING: Map Shows All Food Processing Plants That Have Burned Down, Blown Up or Been Destroyed Under Biden
Folks, this is truly stunning.
They are trying to destroy our food supply!
As someone who sits in this chair and covers the news each day, I see this firsthand.
Heck, we covered this one just this morning:
I knew there have been a lot of food processing plants and other food supply buildings that have burned down, blown up or otherwise met a catastrophic, untimely end in the last 3 years, but I had no idea just how many until I saw it all together in one place.
I've been here to cover each of these, but it's really jarring when you see it all in one place.

Just like I sincerely doubt Hillary and Bill Clinton have over 100+ friends and close business associates who committed suicide or died under strange circumstances, I do not believe these are all accidents.

This looks like an intentional destruction of America from the inside to me.
So now the big question: What can YOU do about it?
And how can you keep your family safe?
