Sound of explosion and cloud of smoke sees the streets of Paris being evacuated, says Foreign Media.
The explosion is reportedly a large gas blast at the heart of Paris. Reports note that smoke is rising above an apartment block shortly after noon in the French capital.
According to French Local media reports, the explosion was triggered by a severed gas pipe.
So far there are no exact counts of injuries, however, images on social media show extensive damage to at least one building.
