The doctors said they are under observation for 24 hours. 

Kalyandurg Fire Officer Nazeer Ahmed said the gas cylinder was intact. He claimed that the kitchen was filled with gas as the regulator was open. The power supply went off at around Midnight and was restored at 4.10 a.m., which led to a spark in the kitchen from some electrical appliance, which ignited the gas leaked in the kitchen leading to the blast, Mr. Nazeer added.
