Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Ecuador’s government said 14 people were injured today when a police munitions warehouse exploded in northern Quito, damaging nearby houses and a school.

Nine police officers and five civilians were hospitalized after gunpowder stored at the police rescue unit’s headquarters in the Pusuqui area of northern Quito exploded, according to a statement published in the president’s official gazette.

Four of the injured were transported to a local children’s hospital, the statement said, without identifying the victims’ ages.
