A four-story building collapsed in the Sicilian town of Ravanusa after a gas explosion and rescuers were searching for 12 missing people, including three children, ANSA news agency reported.

ANSA said the building caught fire after a natural gas pipeline exploded in the town of 11,000 people near Agrigento, a southwestern Sicilian city known for its Greek temples.

Firefighters were able to put out the blaze and began digging through the rubble looking for missing people, including a young couple giving birth.

The explosion damaged at least two other buildings in the town center, ANSA said.
