Sources said that one of the injured was in critical condition and taken to hospital.


A church official said one of the volunteers was missing.


Mayor Jose Luis Martinez Almeida said initial investigations indicated that the explosion in Cal Toledo, a street leading out of the city center, was caused by a gas leak.


Smoke rose from the collapsed building and rescue workers took the elderly from a nursing home near the site.


The explosion completely destroyed the top five floors of the building, which is used as a residence and training for church priests, as well as providing meals for the homeless.
