At least two people were killed and no fewer than 10 injured in an explosion at a petrol station northeast of Rome on Wednesday, firefighters and police said.

The blast occurred when a tanker truck carrying flammable liquid was refuelling at the petrol station on the Salaria highway 30 kilometres (18 miles) outside the capital, according to Italian media.

“A firefighter died, as did a civilian,” the firefighters tweeted.

Antonio Mannoni, head of police in Rieti, the closest city to the petrol station said 10 people were injured, with two in critical condition.
