Sparks from Plug Cause Explosion at Grand Wijaya

TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe police revealed gas leak allegedly caused the explosion at Grand Wijaya Center complex, South Jakarta, on Thursday, July 12. The blast damaged a car, broke window glasses of five buildings in the area, and injured a person.

South Jakarta Police chief Sr. Comr. Indra Jafar suspected the gas leak came from a regulator of a 12-kilogram LPG canister. The gas kept leaking and filled the air up to the third floor of business and management consulting firm PT Provalindo Nusa’s building.

A spark from an electrical plug then triggered the explosion. “It allegedly triggered a big explosion,” said Indra at the scene on Thursday, July 12.

According to witnesses, the explosion occurred at 04:20 am after the semifinal match of the 2018 World Cup concluded. The tremor from the blast was felt up to a radius of approximately 30 meters. The store building was located 100 meters away from the South Jakarta Police headquarter.

On Thursday afternoon, Forensic Laboratory Center (Puslabfor) officers examined the explosion site. “The place must be temporarily sterile for Puslabfor analysis,” Indra added.

There were three people at the scene during the explosion. Broken glasses injured one of them on his feet.
