France's interior minister says four people have been killed, including two firefighters, and 47 injured in a blast at a bakery apparently caused by a gas leak in central Paris.

Christopher Castaner told reporters at the scene that of the injured 10 people are in critical condition and 37 others less seriously injured. 

Police said a fire broke out after the blast at around 9 am local time at the bakery on Rue Trevise in the city's 9th district, a residential and shopping area.

Images posted on Twitter showed debris covering the street and the lower part of the building blown out and in flames. 

Parked cars were also damaged in the blast. A gas leak had been reported in the building and firefighters had been on their way to deal with it when the explosion occurred.

Firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze and evacuate some people from the building using ladders while emergency workers treated some of the injured at the scene.
