THE HAGUE - A woman in The Hague was seriously injured on Thursday when her home caught fire as a result of a gas explosion.
Firefighters say she jumped from her third-floor flat to escape the blaze and has been admitted to hospital with broken bones and third-degree burns.
The woman's flat has been burned down, but neighbours were able to return to their homes once the fire had been extinguished.
