A Con Edison employee was injured Sunday afternoon in a gas explosion at a Manhattan pizzeria, the FDNY said.
Officials had been called to La Mia Pizza in the East Village for a reported gas odor.
Responders detected the gas within the 20-floor building and requested Con Edison to the scene, according to the FDNY.
The explosion occurred inside the pizzeria’s kitchen while FDNY and Con Edison were searching for the source of the odor, the FDNY said.
A Con Edison employee sustained minor injuries, however refused hospital treatment, officials said.
The incident led to an all-hands operation — dispatching 20 units with 78 firefighters responding to the explosion, the FDNY said.
The fire department said Con Edison employees were able to find the source of the gas odor and shut it down.
