An explosion was reported at an office building in western Tehran on Wednesday night, causing heavy damage to part of the building, according to Iranian media. A spokesman for the fire department in Tehran told the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA) that the explosion took place in one of the units at a five-story building used for offices, commercial and residential purposes. He stated that the explosion was caused by a gas leak.

"There was a relatively severe explosion on the second floor of the building," the fire department spokesperson told ILNA. "The blast was so intense that the walls of the unit and the two units next to it were destroyed. Also, part of the façade of the building outside the building was destroyed. Fortunately, the blast did not cause much damage to the upper floors and adjacent buildings." A 35-year-old woman was injured in the explosion and was treated by emergency services. It is unclear what her condition is.
