One person died and two others are missing after an explosion ripped through a residential building on Friday morning in northeast China's Liaoning Province.

Part of the building collapsed after the blast occurred at around 5 am in the Lingdong community of Longgang District, Huludao City, according to a statement from the city's publicity office.

The explosion was suspected to be caused by liquified gas leak. Rescue work is underway, the statement said.
