Images shared online by news website The Paper and state broadcaster CCTV showed a cloud of dust and debris spreading across a busy street and the lower three floors of the building turned into a devastated structure. There were concrete blocks stacked on the street and a three-wheeled delivery vehicle turned on its side.

China is replacing decades-old infrastructure, and gas pipelines are an especially dangerous part of the project. An explosion in a gas pipeline killed 25 people last June in a market and residential area in the central city of Shiyan.

That detonation appeared similar to the one in 2013 in the northeastern port of Qingdao, in which 55 people were killed when underground pipes burst after a leak.

In addition to deterioration caused by time, irregular compliance with safety standards, poor maintenance, and corruption among regulatory bodies are believed to be contributing factors to these disasters.
