LYON – An explosion in the city of Lyon on Friday evening has injured at least seven people.

The explosion occurred around 5:30 pm local time (11:30 am ET) on the corner of Victor Hugo road and Sala road, and the cause is unclear at this point.

Emergency responders have been deployed to assist the wounded, a spokesperson for the National Police told CNN.

On Twitter, the Auvergne Rhone Alpes regional police said a number of people had been “lightly injured” and that the chief of police and prosecutor were on the scene.

A spokesperson for the Police Nationale told CNN that the priority would be assisting the wounded, “regardless of if it was a car crash or a terrorist attack.”

“The reasons for the explosions will be searched for later,” they said.
