At least three people were killed and eight injured Wednesday in an explosion caused by a suspected gas leak in the heart of the Spanish capital, according to Madrid's emergency services.

The blast, which occurred in a building on Toledo Street, caused widespread damage, according to video footage tweeted out by the city hall emergency information service, Emergencias Madrid.

Footage from the scene showed a section of exterior wall had been torn off several floors of the building, leaving rooms exposed to view.

Debris covered parked vehicles and the street below, and a mangled metal street sign could be seen.
