German police say 25 people have been injured، four severely، after an explosion destroyed an apartment block in the city of Wuppertal، Sky News reported.

The explosion rocked the building shortly before midnight on Saturday، though the cause is unclear.

Four seriously injured people were rescued from inside while a further 21 received minor injuries.

Fire broke out in several different parts of the building - which is three stories plus a converted loft - and firefighters had trouble putting it out because parts of the building kept collapsing.

Emergency services were still trying to get the fire under control on Sunday.

An investigation is under way into the cause of the blast.
Police described the scene as a "picture of devastation"، German media reported.
