Seven Egyptian workers suffered serious burns on Saturday in an explosion at a warehouse for gas canisters in the Egyptian temple city of Luxor, police said.

A spark ignited the gas as workers were refilling the canisters for hot air balloons, triggering the explosion that forced police to evacuate the locals in the neighborhood.

The blast caused nearly 1 million U.S. dollars in damage to the hot air ballooning equipment that belongs to a local company offering balloon trips over Luxor's monuments, police said.
