An explosion at the hadlakah of the Biala Rebbe in London injured around 30 people Wednesday night.
Video taken at the scene shows an explosion at the moment the fire was lit. The cause of the explosion was uncertain, but it seems that there was an improper accelerant.
Hatzalah of London treated over 30 people – many of them children – though no injuries were considered to be serious. Around 10 people were taken to the hospital. One child suffered a broken leg from the stampede of people fleeing the explosion.
