Gas leaks in a sewage system are thought to be the cause of a gas explosion in Taiwan that left at least four people dead, authorities say.

Blasts ripped through Kaohsiung in southwestern Taiwan around 9 pm local time. A plume of white fog was said to have blanketed the area, which later ignited.

At least four people are dead and more than 180 others were injured.
