Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mariya Gabriel expressed her condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the explosions near Bucharest in a post on "X" (formerly Twitter) on Sunday.

Gabriel offered her condolences and wished a speedy recovery to the injured. "Bulgaria stands in full solidarity with its neighbour Romania, ready to provide immediate medical assistance", the Deputy Prime Minister's position reads.

A total of 58 people were injured on Saturday night in explosions and a fire at a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) station in Crevedia, Romania. 43 of them were Interior Ministry employees - 39 firefighters, two policemen and two gendarmes, according to the Emergency Inspectorate. A woman who had 95% burns as a result of the explosion died on Sunday. She was the wife of the man who died on the spot last night as a result of a myocardial infarction, without having had any burns.

No Bulgarian citizens were injured in the explosions in Romania, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, citing information from the Bulgarian embassy in Romania.

At the moment, no signals requesting assistance from Bulgarians have been received at our foreign mission.

The Embassy of Bulgaria in Romania is in constant contact with the local authorities and is monitoring the situation.
